Don’t know where she got it from, but these last few weeks my daughter regularly chants “danger danger” to which I started replying “high voltage”. We both laugh each time, fun times! But she’s only 9, so I decided not to show her Electric Six‘s song from which I got that reply on YouTube just yet.
You, on the other hand, are older and I hope you’re not that easily shocked (consider this a kind warning);
Sixties socially engaged soul-jazz written by Gene McDaniels (do watch & listen him discuss the origins of the song) and performed by Les McCann & Eddie Harris at Jazz Montreux and released on the album “Swiss Movement“. And guess which album Gregory Porter would take with him on a desert island?
Lovely summery tune by a great singer (whom I mentioned here a couple of years ago already); Eska with Shades of Blue;
While perusing related video’s I came across this heart-warming quirky live in-the-barn version of “Gate Keeper” from back in 2012 and in that same barn Lianne La Havas covered Little Dragon’s ‘Twice’ accompanied by nothing but a truly superb bass. Who knew barns could be so cool? ;-)
