I didn’t know you had Melody in your studio with you! The sound quality on this is brilliant. In fact Melody and your piano playing/arrangement have sent me to heaven and I’m staying here for a while to listen again. This is in a class of its own.(Have you two got my bottle of Cointreau in there?)

Oh! I have just been transported to the local jazz club, where I sit among the other patrons in candlight and rapture while sipping delicious wine and holding the hand of my love across the table. An amazing combination of talent — your playing is sublime.

If you were here or if I were there, I’d be very tempted to quit my day job and ride off into the jazz sunset with you. Woof.

The reason these simple little blues tunes are so open, melodically, and lyrically sparse is so they could be given this kind of treatment. You have certainly risen to the occasion.
permalink   oldDog Sat, Aug 1, 2009 @ 8:02 AM
That’s a tempting offer.

Your songs are only simple in the sense that a classic is simple, and your voice is swoon-inducing.

[by the way, I love your version of Don’t Smoke in Bed - hearing a recording of Peggy Lee sing that when I was little was one of my first glimpses of the mysterious power of music to move the heart]

Thank you for taking the time to visit my music links and have a listen. I was looking at my old fake book binder filled with jazz I haven’t sung in years. Tho I sometimes miss the tunes (no one plays them well where I am, and if you can’t do them well, I’d rather not) it’s good to be part of making new tunes - something I couldn’t do without being here ccM - that’s for sure. Thank you so much for the mix. My husband said it was the most beautiful thing he’s heard.

proof, that emotion can be expressed and carried long distances with the help of electrons and frequencies!

“Just” added piano and bass? Hahah - said as if it was the easiest thing in the world and you’re almost apologizing for it. :)

This is just about the loveliest track I have heard in a long time. The chord progression strikes right to my Scandinavian heart, and the simple production is outstanding.

I can’t tell you just how much I like this, so I won’t even try to. But thanks for sharing this one. Really.

Thanks colab, striking to the heart is definitely what it’s all about for me! - a big part of that here is the very classy pella.

mmm… Just the thing to take the edge off. A wonderful singer with all the time in the world and an accomodating piano/bass combo. Beautiful.

just an amazing, incredible backing for this. you nail it.

sometimes, on occasion, some of you guys do such a great job owning a pella, it makes me think i shouldn’t even bother trying since i’m left with such a lasting impression. this is one of those times.
permalink   DoKashiteru Tue, Aug 4, 2009 @ 7:51 PM
Amen to that. It’s not a discouraging feeling, either - it’s beautiful to see something so well done, beautiful and inspiring. :D

OOOOooooh, that piano. wow, man. Everything fits together beautifully, like it was all written at once :)

Very well deserved E.P. This is one of the better mix I have heard here so far… Very well done O.D.

What a voice that throws one of the chair.
The music wonderfully empathetic - exellent!

Can I ask for a sorry for being so late??

I mentioned it already, a composer like you can write, compose and at least remix so fine music that it_s a great joy to listen to.

This is some very good work and more some ver beautiful piece of music!!

This is so amazing!
I’ve fallen in love with this song, it’s the epitome of jazz.

I have the perfect set of lyrics for this and I’d love my accompanists to play this with me (if that’s ok with you), do you have the sheet music for this?
permalink   oldDog Sun, Sep 6, 2009 @ 11:07 AM
Hi mochi

Thanks for your comments, glad you liked it - and welcome to the site!

I only added the backing track to the vocal, so I can’t take any credit for the melody or lyrics (that’s Calling Sister Midnight). Like you, I don’t enjoy notation, so there is no proper sheet music I’m afraid - but I could let you have a chord sheet if that would be any use?
permalink   mochi Sun, Sep 6, 2009 @ 12:55 PM
Yes please, that’s be a great help thanks.
Sorry for the trouble!

A year later I discovered this gem. I´m sorry but of course I´m glad it happened. Congrats oldDog.

I’m glad to have recently discovered this buried treasure by oldDog, a juicy bone with hints of “Blue in Green” by Miles Davis. The piano licks and voicings were just right. I can’t get over how rich, earthy and polished Calling Sister Midnight’s vocals are. So tastefully done. Loved it so much, it’s my next tune to learn. Thanks!
