St.L么 - In the Pines (Live at Trans Musicales Fest in France)

LiveMusicTelevision.Com, Live Filmed Performance, St Lo or St.L么, In The Pines song, Trans Musicales

Live Music Television is pleased to present a unique French act known as St.L么. The group is led by a commanding female vocalist named Miz Walidah backed by three of male musicians: docMau, iOta and Ton’s. Miz Walidah has a strong vocal sound that is all her own, but there have been those who have named Grace Jones, Annie Lennox and Nina Simone to describe the vein she is in.

This live performance below was filmed at a annual French music festival that started in 1979 known as Les Rencontres Trans Musicales, also known as Les Transmusicales de Rennes. It takes place in Rennes, Brittany, France. In 2017, it is happening from December 6th through December 10th.

The song that St.L么 performs is a cover, their own unique rendition, of a classic song titled In The Pines. The song that has unknown authorship, but dates back to at least the 1870's. Artists who have coverd it include Lead Belly, Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain and even Dolly Parton.

The band states the following about their cover version of "In The Pines:
"... With almost every cover, singers have taken license to change the lyrics. In the Pines is a folk song and though it is unclear who originally wrote it, folk songs are made to blow in the wind of time and the public domain. They are susceptible to change. St.L么 reinterprets In the Pines as a two person conversation, a hauntingly soulful story, set to a steady four on the floor."

Ayo - Live At The Olympia

LiveMusicTelevision.Com presents Ayo, Live at The Olympia

Ayo hangs her heart over the ledge and sings beautifully. She does many ballads, mostly heart wrenching songs about love and life. She has a strong R&B, soul and pop repertoire in additions to her ballads.

The film of the 1.5 hour concert featured below is titled Ayo - Live At The Olympia. It was directed by Rapha毛l Frydman and presented by Polydor, a division of Universal Music France.

The Olympia is a music hall in Paris, France, and is also known as L'Olympia. In the above promo photo, it says Bruno Coquatrix just underneath "Live At The Olympia". Bruno Coquatrix was the owner and manager of The Olympia. Bruno passed away in 1979, long before this concert was filmed, but his name continues to live on. He was often instrumental being a early recognizer and advocate of great emerging young talent and for bringing leading established stars to his theater for French audiences to enjoy.

Although the concert was filmed ten years ago, the songs are timeless. If you are a new or long time fan of Ayo's, this is a wonderful concert to watch. It was directed by Raphael Frydman. Enjoy!

Ray Charles - Live at Montreux Jazz Festival

Live Music Television presents Ray Charles, Live at the 1997 Montreux Jazz Festival

Live Music Television is proud to present Ray Charles, a soul music pioneer.

Born in Georgia in 1930 he was one of the first performers to mix gospel, R&B and jazz to create a new form of black pop music that would come to be known as soul. His voice and delivery were strikingly different and instantly recognisable. He had his first hits in the early 1950's and was still hitting the charts into the 21st century. His death in June 2004 from liver disease was front page news around the world.

This concert was filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival on July 19, 1997 and features Ray Charles and his orchestra, led by sax player Al Jackson, and of course The Raelettes.

Thank you to Eagle Rock Entertainment for making these videos available. Get the full concert at this link

Lianne La Havas - I Say A Little Prayer (Stellar Live Take)

Live Music Television presents the most beautiful Lianne La Havas and a Aretha channeling

Live Music Television is very proud to present one more great live performance from Lianne La Havas.

She covers the Burt Bacharach and Hal David penned song titled I Say A Little Prayer (For You) with brilliance. Dionne Warwick first recorded the song in 1966 and it became a very successful hit in 1967. Numerous luminaries including Aretha Franklin have covered the song and this take below by Lianne La Havas is up there in that league as one of the greatest takes ever in our humble opinion.

It was filmed live at Studio Brussel, a radio station in Belgium that consistently and beautifully captures in-studio performances of many great acts.
