For many, his concert at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2000 was one of the best shows ever seen in the Netherlands. On that sensational evening D’Angelo showed he is an outstanding bandleader as well as a charismatic multi-instrumentalist. He whipped his horn section – all of whom are jazz musicians – into a frenzy and each one gave the performance of their life. Afterwards, things fell frightening silent for him for quite a while as a result of artistic questioning and personal problems. But now, fifteen years on, D’Angelo is literally back and in top form. His new album Black Messiah (2015) has been dubbed a masterpiece and the show that the king of ‘groove, croon and swoon’ brought to Amsterdam earlier this year was a sensual, romping, sometimes raunchy and completely unforgettable soul spectacle. A unique opportunity to see this reborn master of soul hit the heights once again.
