The grits factor 

Cause and effect at Spoleto USA

Page 3 of 3

Jazz

The Grits Effect turned stormy over the second weekend, forcing the Faustus company to do their final performance with house lights turned on and pushing the outdoor jazz concert scheduled at The Cistern indoors to the Gaillard Auditorium Exhibition Hall. Best memories of The Cistern -- and this year's jazz series -- remained the charismatic René Marie, who militantly emphasized her own songs on the balmy opening weekend. Renato Braz was as impressive at Gaillard as I'd remembered him from 2004, backed by percussion superstars Sizão Machado and Bré. Those of us who weathered the typhoon on Saturday night were rewarded with a fine trio concert from Enrico Pieranunzi. Apparently, Signor P had done his moodier work earlier at this year's Spoleto in solo and duo concerts. All was fleet and fabulous with the trio.
