Review by Tom Wilcox
The TV Show, City Winery, New York
Saturday 3rd January 2015

Tony Visconti and special guests delivered an exhilarating and masterful performance to a packed City Winery in New York last night.
The perfectly balanced set of 19 songs was selected from the three or four thousand songs that Visconti has played on, produced or mixed over his fabled career in music. The exceptional highlights for Bowie fans included Suzanne Vega’s divine singing on ‘The Man Who Sold The World’, a haunting version of the dystopian epic ‘Sweet Thing/Candidate’ sung by Richie Barone and a roof-lifting, barn-storming ‘Young Americans’ sung by Nakia.
The band recreated the essential feeling of the songs with careful attention to each tune’s unique nuances. Visconti’s distinctive, dynamic, bass playing grooved imperiously with Dennis Diken’s drums. Gerry Leonard – described by Visconti on the night as “one of the best guitar players I have ever worked with” – was sublime, as ever. Joe McGinty’s keyboards and Peter Hess’s horns completed the rich soundscape.
The principal singer Richie Barone brought passion and theatricality to the night, not least on an emotive ‘Sweet Thing/Candidate’. The rotation of guest singer between the ascending talents of Kiah Victoria, Nakia and Larkin Graham, as well as very special guest Suzanne Vega, added much to the freshness and excitement of the evening.
The New York audience loved this performance which once again illustrated the unique quality and variety of Visconti’s career. Tony Visconti’s renaissance as a performing bass player continues to delight and entertain.
