This week we feature:
Anders Holst – Told you a Thousand Times – from the CD Romantika
We featured Anders back in Nov as his latest CD was scheduled for release during that time. Anyway the CD was eventually issued very recently in ’09. At the time we featured an awesome interpretation Billie Joel’s All about Soul. We received an email from Amy Long from twoshepsthatpass.com and we figured ‘I told you a Thousand times’ from the CD would be appropriate as it is Valentine’s after all.
Now and again you hear song that sounds so exceptional, so good that you just buy the CD on hearing the track. This led the Professor to purchase the associated CD entitled Stronger Than Pride back in 1988
This track is from her 2004 CD – Don’t talk that reached number one in the UK Jazz Chart and number twenty in the mainstream UK Albums Chart.
This track is from the awesome foursome of distinguished musicians. It also includes a guest: Chaka Khan on Lead Vocals. A Beautifully created interpretation of an older song crafted in that special way that only this band can do.
From the CD B’Day Deluxe Edition. The CD was released in (2006–2007). Inspired by her role in Dreamgirls, she worked on her second album without any specific plan, telling MTV News, (When filming ended) I had so many things bottled up, so many emotions, so many ideas”. B’Day was released worldwide on September 4, 2006 and on September 5, 2006 in the United States to coincide with the celebration of her twenty-fifth birthday. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling more than 541,000 copies in the first week
Alexander is an America Soul artist whos rather popular in the UK too. He had his first UK hit with this song. It is featured on his self-titled 1st album from the mid 80s and also appears on the 1996 CD , The Best of Alexander O’Neal. This version is the soft mix that appeared on a 12 inch single.
From the 2005 CD Catching Tales. Jamie Cullum is well known not only for his abilities on the piano, but also for his unique entertainment style and charisma.
A Taste Of Honey
This is a really nice song by a band that gave us the disco hit “Boogie Oogie Oogie” which features, what sounds like the 13 string instrument called the Koto, which is associated with Japanese music but has origins in China.
Chris Botti featuring Gladys Knight
Frm the CD To Love again this track ends the show on a a chilled romantic number.
