Gilad Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble at the Cali

The gig finished with an outstanding rendition of "Georgia" which, as Atzmon said, needed no introduction, and then it was over. When asked how he describes his music, he answered, "Urban Folk," and said he also loves playing small venues and clubs like the one in Ipswich. He came out front, got close to the audience and made a point of speaking to people when he got the chance. The audience knew they had been treated to an experience of rare and special playing, not only from Atzmon but by the other members of the Ensemble who backed him up with uncanny intuition. This lineup has been together since 2009 and is obviously well in tune with each other. There was much expectation at this gig and Atzmon and his Orient House Ensemble did not disappoint.
