Apologies for the poor (shaky hand-held mobile phone in poor light) quality of this video, but having enjoyed a sublime performance by Gilad Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble at the Pizza Express Jazz Bar in Soho on Thursday 6th March 2014 and realising that the set was about to end, I decided to try and capture some of the magic. The set included all the numbers from the magnificent "Songs of the Metropolis" album (which includes Berlin which is reprised at the end of this clip) and this sweet version of Laura. This is not on the album, but a version of it can be found (with haunting vocals by Robert Wyatt) on the album, "For the Ghosts Within", a musical collaboration between Gilad Atzmon, Robert Wyatt and Ros Stephen.
