CLEO LAINE : THAT OLD FEELING [1984]

Το τραγούδι του Sammy Fain έχει ηχογραφηθεί επανειλημμένα από το 1937, χρονιά της κυκλοφορίας του. Διαλέγω μια ερμηνεία σχετικά άγνωστη, αλλά όχι γι’ αυτό λιγότερο σημαντική : η βαθειά εκφραστική, κοντράλτο φωνή της Βρετανίδας jazz τραγουδίστριας, δίνει στη μουσική εντελώς ιδιαίτερη απόχρωση. Πριν από την Cassandra Wilson υπήρχε η Cleo Lane…

Sammy Fain‘s song has been recorded repeatedly since 1937, the year of its release. I choose an interpretation relatively unknown, but not less important: the deeply expressive, contralto voice of the British jazz singer gives the music a very special hue. Before Cassandra Wilson there was Cleo Laine…

I saw you last night and got that old feeling
When you came in sight I got that old feeling
The moment that you danced by I felt a thrill
And when you caught my eye my heart stood still
Once again I seemed to feel that old yearning
And I knew the spark of love was still burning
There’ll be no new romance for me, it’s foolish to start
For that old feeling, is still in my heart
There’ll be no new romance for me, it’s foolish to start
For that old feeling, is still in my heart

      Nope. A great jazz singer with impressive collaborations [from Ray Charles and Sinatra to Nigel Kennedy and John Williams] and a vast repertoire, including classical – musical theater stuff.
