Van Hunt

Rick invited me to see Van Hunt and opener Jesca Hoop last night at the Temple Bar courtesy of KCRW (Rick won tickets during the last pledge drive); both artists are favorites of the radio station. Though I have his two terrific albums, really enjoyed Van Hunt's acoustic set which brought a fresh immediacy and intimacy to his sophisticated neo-soul, reminiscent of Marvin Gaye. Very groovin' crowd, too, the ladies could sing!

Here's some video I took:

The closing portion of the crowd-pleasing "Dust"...

Singing the beautiful "Down Here In Hell (With You)"...
