Bona at Nefertiti!

Yesterday I was with some friends, at the excellent jazz-club Nefertiti in Gothenburg, to see and hear the fantastic musician Richard Bona from Cameroon. He is a long time favourite of mine and I have heard him live several times before.

It was a great concert which had a wide variety of styles. He mixes jazz, funk, blues and African rythms in a very attractive and sometimes genius way. He is a real master of his instrument (bass), and his band was not bad either. Especially the drummer Obed Calvaire and the keyboard player Etienne Stadwijk.

He has released a new album called “The Ten Shades of Blues”. I have not heard the album yet but he played a few songs from it and it was very promising. The sound quality is usually very good on Bona´s records.

Thank you Richard Bona for a great concert.
