Kat Edmonson Is Playing Le Poisson Rouge, Here Is The Setlist Spotified

Kat is from Houston, Texas, which goes a long way to explaining her Lyle Lovett duet, though not the choice of song, “Long Way Home”, a soft shoe piece of old time pop. But their voices mesh very well, and the Billie Holiday soundalike is a talented woman, a sort of Diana Krall without the Nat King Cole jones. And without the piano of course.

Last year, Kat released the good third album The Big Picture, which included her greatest moment so far, “Who’s Counting” a song so fabulous it is amongst the best of the decade. And she performs it tonight at LPR, but what she doesn’t appear to be doing is her ringer covers like “Just Like Heaven” and “(Just Like) Starting Over”. On record the latter includes dead silence at the end, so not just with an undeniable and very compassionate and fragile version but also a moments silence, more than pays trobute to John Lennon.

My problem with The Big Picture is my problem with Kat: her voice is so damn distinctive even when she is covering blues, country, rock, it all sounds like Kat. Good over a coupla of songs but a little too much over an hour.

But I may be wrong and this is a great setlist (and I’m guessing she will be playing something similar) though not just like heaven… a terrific cover you shoul search out. Personally? I bet she leaves “Who’s Counting” for the encore.
