A diva nestled somewhere between soul and jazz and a new queen of the blues: Natalie Cole and Susan Tedeschi presented a «Ladies Night» with style and class. One has been a superstar since the seventies, the other began her ambitious career in the nineties, but both guarantee singing artistry of the highest calibre. Natalie Cole is a soul diva and a pop star at the same time, thanks to Bruce Springsteen’s «Pink Cadillac», and a jazz singer, following in the footsteps of her unforgettable father, Nat «King» Cole. In the spirit of Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raitt, Grammy-nominated singer and guitarist Susan Tedeschi assured a congenial opening for this ladies’ night.
