Orlando

Breu però magnífica la presentació del nou cd  de Névoa amb el títol "Orlando"  a "A Casa Portuguesa" del carrer Verdi.
El títol d'aquest nou enregistrament de Névoa, Orlando i el mite creat per Virgínia Wolf els anys vint del segle passat, són la font de la que la cantant beu, el jaç on descansa per presentar un seguit de cançons que tenen en comú el fet incontestable que l'artista s'hi troba còmoda cantant-les.
Disc molt recomanable del qual us en deixo un tast que vam enregistrar amb els nostres modestos mitjans.



Va passar, però, que en aquesta presentació no hi va poder ser present el guitarrista Vicenç Solsona , motius familiars li ho van impedir (i esperem que tot s'hagi resolt bé), i l'únic acompanyament de què va disposar la Névoa va ser la del percusioniste Ramón Ángel Rey, que amb el seu "cajón" va donar aquell escalf que tot cantant necessita sentir al costat de la seva veu.

Aqui va el tast, i en podeu trobar una mica més al Youtube

De Joni Mitchell, Both sides now
 

Bows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

Oh but now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost but something's gained
In living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From WIN and LOSE and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

I've looked at life from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all.
