Review of Matana Roberts & Kelly Jayne Jones

Overall rating: 4 Verified review

Not "mainstream" so needs to be approached with an open mind and an open heart. And then it's beautiful and human and life-affirming.

Review of Matana Roberts & Kelly Jayne Jones

Overall rating: 4.5 Verified review

I could have done with it being a more rambunctious performance than the more subdued electronics/amplified objects/laptops setup we actually got. It wasn't bad, it just a little unfocussed to me. Though Matana Roberts' occasional interjections on clarinet, sax, or percussion (and a couple with her voice) in particular felt sharp and purposeful. But both great performers, good support from Rebekah Reid too.
