Notice how I refrain from making a silly pun on the name “Bliss”…
In Gotham last night, Nov. 15th, audiences were treated to a rare solo performance by Bliss Blood. She was part of the New York edition of Ukulele Noir Nineteen.
She played a concert Kamaka ukulele and sang some great songs…but, good as the singing and playing was, what really knocked me off my padded chair…
…was her whistlin’. Damn! Now there’s a nice, sassy, bingcrosby, doingsomethingelsewithyourmouth solo with the ukulele that is really killer. But it has to be spot on. And Bliss’ whistlin’ was spot on.
I’m so jealous.
