Beautiful Paula Cole Superstar

I was always too broke in the '90s to see Paula Cole live. My mom always told me: Better late than never! Ms. Cole and her fellahs performed at SPACE last night and what a show it was. Imagine a room like Makor in NYC and you'll get the idea. Nice sound. Tables. And if you were too cheap to reserve a table, then there were nice chairs to sit on. I must thank kind photographer, Evelyn for directing me to sit stage left instead of stage right. It was a much better vantage point by the piano. The guitar player reminded me a little of Colin Hay; and funny enough, it turned out he was from Australia. The drummer was from New York and both guys helped make the set sound better than the recordings. Paula Cole must have a painting in a closet somewhere that is aging since she looked the same as in the video from, "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?" And her soaring vocal pyrotechnics reminded me of how Pat Monahan with that beautiful tenor voice of his, always amazes me. Cole sounded like an angel. Pitch perfect, rocker chick hair solo, fine piano playing, dancing that reminded me of Cat Power/Lisa Hannigan and human beat boxing during a show that was part singer/songwritery/jazzy/and even had a bit of classical influences. Wow. To go see for yourself, please visit her site:
