I've always had a thing for Isabella Rossellini. So when I heard her voice on the tune LookListenFeel, I had to get the track. It's from a fantastic new release by The Maple Mountain Sunburst Triolian Orchestra. I liked the album so much I just had to feature it in a mix.
As with many mixes, this one took twists & turns I hadn't quite expected. It started off sort of psychedelic then quickly veered into something sort of funky, sort of jazzy, sort of downtempo.
I love the detour it took to Dorothy Ashby. I discovered her 1968 album Afro-Harping at NPR music. I had already finished the mix when I heard the song "Soul Vibrations" and just knew I had to use it. It fits in very nicely. Somehow U2 & Dave Brubeck get squeezed in here as well. It finishes off where it began with The Maple Mountain Sunburst Triolian Orchestra.
I really enjoyed making this mix & even though it's a bit different for normal low light fare, I hope you enjoy it too.
