First of all, I'm not really a fan of Jazz. I rarely ever listen to it and when I do it's not for long. My dad however is (amongst others) a big fan of blues and jazz and thus a regular visitor of the North Sea Jazz festival which in recent year moved to Rotterdam.
When this year's line-up was announced I saw some stuff which I liked, maybe somewhat related to jazz but not really jazz itself, so I told my dad that if he went to the final day I'd go with him. And so we went :)
First of all we went to see Alicia Keys
. Back when I was young I sort of liked her music, something which never really turned to hate. My father even bought her first cd and was probably more excited to see her than me. Yet I was the one standing somewhere near the front. My dad stood somewhere near the sounds guys (in the middle of the hall), because "he's too old for all that".
Surprisingly Alicia Keys turned out to be really great live, far exceeding my expectations. …
