Alain Clark - Rome gets funky.

Back to Rome this week for a live concert by Soul/Funk artist Alain Clark performing at RAI Radio 2 studios this past February, and rebroadcast in July.

I admit to not being all that familiar with Clark, someone who has much more of a reputation in Europe than over here. But I found this live gig pretty damn sensational, so I thought I would share it with you.

I always harp on how much more live music there is to be had overseas than here in the U.S. - and how much diversity there seems to be which is just missing over here. But facts are, there just is. I suspect it's always been that way, only now with Streaming Audio from just about every broadcasting outlet in the world, the amount of what we're missing is just that much more magnified.

Alain Clark has only been around for a few years, kicking off a very successful career as singer/songwriter/producer in 2005. In that short time he's achieved much.

And this live concert, complete with excited Italian announcers, pretty much proves it.
