Liz Janes and Create (!)
Liz Janes joined jazz ensemble Create (!) to produce a beautiful album of old songs. Jane's voice remains hauntingly beautiful on this album, but the collaborative effort is a change from regular Liz Jane fare. From the Asthmatic Kitty web site: The recording relinquishes all the bells and whistles from Liz's previous recordings, augmenting instead the understated elements of Negro spirituals, love ballads, and traditional folk songs we know so well. Pull up the blankets and listen carefully. There is someone singing in your ear.
How beautiful is that?

The LP of refashioned songs Liz Janes & Create (!) is available through Asthmatic Kitty.
