A review from Latitude.. biggrin.gif .. http://www.latitudefestival.com/live-bl ... ll%20young

WILL YOUNG SMOOTHS OUT THE MUSIC & FILM ARENA
While The 1975 blast out a raucous headline slot over at the Obelisk Stage, here at the Music & Film Arena it’s a whole lot more of a chilled affair. Will Young’s Summer Jazz Sessions is soothing the Friday night crowd with a whole bank of pop classics, reinterpreted in a silky style befitting the atmosphere in the tent.

The five-piece supporting him are an amalgamation of the best in the business, and it shows. Their mellow and smooth versions of Phil Collins and Tears for Fears classics sit snugly with the jazz standards, members launching into moments of exquisite freestyle as the others slot into support. The mood lighting brought an extra layer of finesse, the band’s silhouettes creating a hazy light show amongst the pinks and purples.

The band are in a playful mood, finding the game in everything. Jams turn into back and forth between members while scat sessions become a round of follow the leader. Will’s beaming charm shines through between songs, regaling tales of his life and his inner thoughts. Though don’t go asking him if he fancies a jump in our lake...

Finishing on his own cover of ‘Evergreen’ (mixed in with a wink of Destiny’s Child) showed the transformation of Will since his Pop Idol days. He has fully established himself as a modern-day renaissance man, adding jazz to a wondrous CV of theatre and music.

As dusk made way for night, the film and music tent made for a hot and sensual atmosphere for Will Young’s Summer Jazz sessions. Young never felt a natural fit for the manufactured world of reality tv but seems to have found his place in recent years. His jazz takes on some of his own back catalogue such as Jealousy as well as some standards of the form and reveal his voice to be a flexible, powerful instrument and in his interactions between songs reveal an artist more comfortable than he has appeared for some time.
