This special performance is the culmination of a year long tour by Marianne Faithfull and pianist/arranger Paul Trueblood. Thee breathy, frail, and innocent voice of the '60s, wilted by too many years of hard living, now conveys deep layers of emotion, and the rasp in her voice goes straight to the soul. This concert revisits her album '20th century Blues' and her passion for Kurt Weill, especially the songs composed for his theatre collaborations with Bertolt Brecht (among them 'Alabama Song', 'Pirate Jenny', 'The Ballad Of The Soldier's Wife' and 'Surabaya Johnny'). Here Marianne reveals herself as an accomplished the world-weariness of Marlene Dietrich with the raw expressiveness of Lotte Lenya.
