Interesting shows with Jane are coming up. Together with Arthur H, Stef Kamil Carlens and Waits-collaborator David Coulter Birkin is part of a tribute to the Tom Waits-album Rain Dogs. She appears in two shows, one in Eindhoven (Holland) and one in Paris. Later on, Jane and four ‘of the best Japanese musicians’ pay tribute to the songs of Serge Gainsbourg. Why? Well, Jane asked herself the same question. From her site: ‘I’d done it all before, Serge in pop, arabesque, classic quator, 14 musicians, 6 musicians, a harp, a squeeze box, violins…’. But then the earthquake in Japan happened. Jane was shocked: ‘I have known these people for forty years… “go there” I thought… tell them that back home folk are thinking of them, but get there, “and do what ?” What can I do? …the only thing I can do… a concert…’ That concert grew into a full-blown tour. She’s coming to Amsterdam, various European cities and the US. See here. Reviews of the show (links, or written by you) are welcomed!
