Gary Brooker sang the extended version of A Salty Dog (read the Latin text here) at the tenth 'Concerto dell’Epifania' in the glorious setting of Santa Maria la Nova in Naples on 4 January 2005. Many thanks to Mark Lundquist for sending BtP this magnificent photograph ... click it for a bigger version, if you want one for printing out (the Commander is seen all-too-rarely at the helm of a real grand piano these days!)
The song was broadcast on the main Italian TV channel RAI 1, on 6 January at 9.35 in the morning! In case anyone missed it, and is happy to wait for a 7MB Quicktime file to open, you may hear and see the magnificent piano-vocal performance by clicking here.
Sadly they didn't broadcast Gary's other number, Holding On ... but it was a very short programme based on a long concert.
