On Monday 24th February Soul gigs and Biggs presented the return of Legendary RnB Songstress Teedra Moses, who completed the second of her two-night residency at the world-famous Jazz Café.
Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of her classic album Complex Simplicity. Teedra took to the stage looking amazing as always, backed by an incredibly tight and well-drilled 4‑piece band, alongside her backing vocalist the charismatic and highly soulful J Black.
Not only did Teedra perform songs from Complex Simplicity we were also treated to songs from the brilliant Cognac and Conversation album as well as an exclusive performance of ‘Culture’ taken from KAYTRANADA’s new album BUBBA.
Teedra acknowledged her fellow female RnB contemporises by performing a heartfelt tribute to Mary J Blige and Lauryn Hill with a rendition of ‘Be Happy and ‘Fugee La’. This show was certainly for the grown and sexy whilst Teedra made sure she had a little something for the ratchets in attendance too. There was something on her setlist for everyone.
You couldn’t help but admire the way she flawlessly sang through every single song of her hour and a half long set whilst occasionally sipping from her Brandy and dancing flirtatiously across the stage at various intervals throughout the show.
My personal highlight of the night was her sensuous performance of the song ‘backstroke’, which she performed to close her set before exiting the stage.
After a rapturous applause from the adoring crowd Teedra sent her audience home beaming with an extended version of her classic ‘Be your girl’. Overall Teedra Moses delivered a beguiling masterclass in vocal delivery and live performance, giving this 15th Anniversary celebration of Complex Simplicity the send-off this classic album so richly deserves.
