I'm a big fan of Frank Loesser's lyrics and Jimmy McHugh's melodies, so I decided to add a few to my repertoire. When I'm learning new songs, I record myself a capella to see how my voicings are sounding and what I need to work on. It's bare, but I thought this turned out kind of sweet.
Another true story from my family... [more inside]
To appease (or perhaps aggravate) your curiosity, here's a tiny little teaser compiled from the Mefi Music Collaboration tracks. [more inside]
Written by the incomparable Alistair MacGillivray (who rocks my socks), this song was written after an accident at the No. 26 Colliery in Glace Bay, NS in 1979. [more inside]
A song I wrote a couple of years ago as a tribute to my great uncle Bernard, who went down in a Halifax III during WWII. Oh hell. Just listen to the song to get the story.
Ever since this post, I've had this song in my head. Been goofily singing it to myself pretty constantly. So I decided to just record it a capella for no reason whatsoever. It's not jazz (slightly bluesy in spots though) & of course it's not as good as Nillson's but I figure maybe I've gotten it out of my system now. I mean, how often does a girl get to record herself singing about decomposing whales? ;)
