Live From New York

Sean Noonan, Richard Bona & Sugar Pie DeSanto

By Published: January 22, 2012
Following the 2011/12 Witching Hour, there was quite a considerable gap before Lee Fields & The Expressions began its set. It was a wise decision to place DeSanto in the pre-midnight position, as her performance was filled with more subtle nuances. Soul man Fields is a more conventional interpreter, and his songbook was more suited to general partying. Besides, some of the audience had started to disperse (or collapse) by this time, and Fields can be found reasonably regularly on the stages of NYC. This was DeSanto's first gig in the area for almost 46 years, when she last appeared at Harlem's Apollo Theater. It was an occasion to be savored whilst the crowd was at its peak.
