Ana Popovic to Release a Brand New Live DVD on December 7, 2010 “An Evening At Trasimeno Lake: Live From The Heart Of Italy” October 7, 2010Posted by David W. King in Uncategorized.
Europe’s hottest guitar player just got hotter!
Back in 2008, Jazz News boldly described guitar player, singer, songwriter Ana Popovic as “Proof that the re-incarnation of Jimi Hendrix is a woman”. Ana, a big fan of Jimi, was naturally honored but laughed and said, “There’s only one Jimi, just like there’s only one Stevie Ray Vaughan.”
Ana was right of course, but with her unique blend of blues, tinged with jazz, funk and rock there is also only one Ana Popovic.
Ana is pleased to bring fans what is perhaps her most mature release to date; An Evening At Trasimeno Lake: Live From The Heart Of Italy (2010) – a concert of the Ana Popovic Band during their ‘Blind For Love’ tour. This DVD includes over two hours of music with an enthusiastic 5000+ audience an eight-piece band and a top crew with six cameras to capture this unforgettable evening. The energetic Ana Popovic Band is at its best offering up a little something for everyone including blues, rock, jazz and funk.
Ana’s relatively short career has already seen many highlights and awards as she has been nominated for the W.C.Handy award for Best New Artist Debut in 2003. She was the winner of the most prestigious, and oldest award for jazz in France, Jazz A Juan Revelations at Juan Les Pines, France in 2003.
She was nominated four times at the Living Blues Awards in 2006 for Best Blues DVD of 2005, Best Live Performer, Best Female Blues Artist and Most Outstanding Musician (Guitar). Other accolades include being nominated for Blues Artist of the Year (BluesWax, 2007) and for the ‘British Blues Awards (2010) for Best Overseas Artist. Her 2007 album Still Making History made its way to the U.S. Billboard chart for a total of 19 weeks, peaking at #3.
Yearly, Ana and her phenomenal 4-piece band are booked all over the globe, playing major blues and jazz festivals in Europe, the United States and Canada. Be prepared ’cause changes are big they’ll be playing a show near you!
