Sarah Jaffe at JBTV Studios

IMG_0207.JPGYesterday I had the great opportunity to be part of a small audience for Sarah Jaffe’s JBTV taping. She played the night before in Chicago, opening for Astronautilus at Lincoln Hall. I couldn’t make that show. So I count myself very lucky to be able to take the trip over to the studio for an even more intimate concert.

The set consisted of seven songs, mostly from her latest album Don’t Disconnect. I’m a big fan of the new direction her music is taking. The sounds are much bigger and more complex than her previous records. The highlight, though, was a take on the new album’s title track performed without any accompaniment-just Jaffe a Capella and it was jaw-dropping.

You can see the whole concert online at JBTV’s website when they post it. You can also check out about a billion other shows while you’re there.
