Feeling Good

24 Comments

Welcome to a new Soul & Jazz Mix with the next common star FKA twigs, Soul Treasures from Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and others more and some amazing cover versions. And you can watch to a wonderful Jazz movie trailer. Then you can listen to the debut album from Raury, which is big stuff.

FKA twigs aka Tahliah Barnett. She is a British singer. FKA stands for Formerly Known As. Her debut was released in August. She became known as twigs for the way her bones crack. Her style in music: she makes trip-hop for a new time. Then I am glad to share one of my all time favorite Jazz standards “The Stolen Moment”. Speedometer playing a jazzy version of “Happy”. We have Northern Soul in the mix and finally three soul giants: Donny Hathaway with his wonderful Live version of “The Ghetto, Marvin Gaye and King Curtis Live at the Filmore west. Then I found three treasures, deep in the cellar: Ananda Shankar with his “Dancing Drums”, one of my favorite track from Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra and the Brazilian Tamba Trio with “Desafinado”.

Listen, relax and enjoy!

By surprise I found the trailer for a Jazz Movie: “All Night Long” with the recently passed actor and director Richard Attenborough together with Jazz Giants like Dave Brubeck and Charles Mingus. I have never heard about the film, but the trailer with the music is fantastic and makes me curious.

For the BBC, it was the album of the week: Raury with his album “Indigo Child”. He is still 18 years young and his sample style where he mixed Folk with Soul Elements to a unique sound is great.
