It’s February and Valentines Day is over but love continues! I recently had a show all about love… good,bad and indifferent. It was a wonderful evening and the audience had a good time with a bit of call and response to Alright,Okay You Win and Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t Ma Baby.  Then to really mix things up, I sang a few pop jazzed tunes from my current CD such as Midnight At The Oasis with an R+B groove and Moondance in a very fast latin style.  I let our Latin Mexican American drummer Lupe’ set the groove and tempo WOWEE.  It was burning!

As I look forward, I also look back. I thought in celebration of counting to ten …TWO …and it being Valentines month, you might enjoy a new single release.  THIS IS A PREVIEW ANNOUNCEMENT!  It’s a jazz tune from Horace Silver with solos sung by me and my pal Ev with the group I mentioned last month, The New Collection.   We never released any of the album in 2015 as singles or downloads.  When I was developing my ideas for the year, I decided this would be the perfect song for February.  SISTER SADIE was a mean chick and she thought that she was real slick. Then she met Alfonso Brown & naturally, I hope you will visit this song on my web site, CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon or you can stream it from Spotify!  It should be up and running on iTunes and Spotify in a few days till then check it out on CD Baby.          MUCH LOVE & BIG HUG as we continue to celebrate LOVE,  Carolyn

P.S.  Do you like me as a blonde? It’s a wig!
