Tastemakers At Work
I love love love love this disc.
Yeah, me too! HEAVY ROTATION here on Brandon Street.
Why the love? It's sparse. I love sparse. It's drums, piano and vocals basically. It's like a jazz trio in the way the three elements weave in and out. It's haunting too. The songs don't let you go easily. Gina and I once spent a lovely morning in a coffee shop discussing if we could be any musician, who would we be? Right now, I would be Fiona Apple.
I remember that lovely morning! I was gonna be Ben Folds, right? And you, Elvis Costello? And now, Fiona Apple, and... I'll say Esperanza Spalding! GRRL POWER!!
This interview is fantastic. Quincy is the man! https://www.gq.com/story/quincy-jones-has-a-story
