RANDOM TRACKS: [re:jazz] ft Alice Russell – ‘Gabrielle’

26/08/2010

Stumbled across this track while listening to Alice Russell on Spotify. I had never heard of [re:jazz] before, but I know that Alice has long been the go-to vocalist for many leftfield projects so I decided to hit play and take a listen.

WOW was the first word that entered my head. This isn’t the usual big-belter Alice, nor the jazzy, slightly off-kilter Alice. This is Alice singing a beautiful mid-tempo track, with little embelishment, just her and some great backing. Take a listen below and let me know your thought in the comments. I’m off to get myself acquainted with [re:jazz].

    It’s a nice cover, no doubt. Musically, it’s reminiscent of Meshell Ndegeocello’s Bitter album. Pretty damn sweet. Good work!

    This blows me away. Love this range on Alice. I want more of this. It’s a hauntingly beautiful track.
