Love it Joey, thank you. Rock me baby is just so bluesy . The jazz festival will be opening up soon , I'll be checking out a singer called Susie Arioli .
My country's own Jacques Brel with "Ne me quitte pas". With English subtitles but don't let them take your attention away from the emotions Brel expresses in this song. A masterpiece.
While Jacques Brel obviously can't be beaten at this, still, do you know Barb Jungr's excellent cover? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBiBBKEQCw0
When it comes to Jacques Brel, though, I prefer Jef and Le plat pays... Make of it what you want.
Just heard that Jazz great Jimmy Scott died on June 12.
Been taking a trip down memory lane recently.......
Harvest/ Neil Young
Low Spark of High Heeled Boys/ Traffic
Paradise Theater/ STYX
Moondance/ Van Morrison
As well as a mix CD of Bette Midler, Judy Collins, Phoebe Snow and The Winnie the Pooh Song (forget who cut that one) and a couple of tracks by Joe Tex.
I grew up listening to music when it was ok to mix it up which left me with an appreciation of just about everything.
Amazing, simply amazing!!!!
Watch "Buika: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert"
Baaaang! This singer gave me such a "coup-de-foudre", PP. Her voice has a very sexy irresistible "grain" in it, not to mention the passion she puts in her performance. Thanks for sharing this, amiga!
My friend sent me the link, I watched it in my car during my lunch break, and I have to say I was very moved by her performance, almost brought me to tears. Her style has heavy Spanish influences, with Mexican undertones, and then she totally killed it with the Jazz. Awesome. I would go even further to say I can hear a lot of Caribbean in there too, PR, Cuban, Haitian...
Two days prior to listening to it i had booked another trip to Spain. This time longer.. So it was nice to listen to the video, took me back.
Edited to add: that she's literally toured ALL over the world. She was just in Barcelona, NYC and PR very recently.
I LOVE Streisand. People can say what they will about her, but man, that woman has a voice that melts my soul.
You're very right, PP, she has definitely flamenco influences! I found this stunning video where she sings with Javier Limón... breath taking! And here you hear so well that nice "grain" in her voice. Thanks again for pointing out this fabulous singer, PP, I didn't even know of her existence.
So, you're going back to Spain? Watch it, Spain so much gets under your skin!
It already has. Aside from enjoying the obvious beauty of Barcelona, I'm going to Spain to start a vicinity scout search because I'm actually thinking of wanting to spend a few months a year (Nov-Jan) there... like closing up our house, taking our dog, etc.
One that is beyond description - starts as OK / Good... gets to funny then to real music and cow-bell.
All around interesting talent.
