Just Relax With Some Soul And Jazz

Here's something to relax to after a week of hard labour: a little bit of soul, jazz and good old-fashioned pop. I believe the best album of 2009 was from God Help The Girl, a solo-project and concept from Stuart Murdoch, the singer and founder of Belle & Sebastian. I like the way Murdoch mixes, let’s say, the easy listening of Burt Bacharach with the alternative sound of Morrissey and the Smiths. It’s a very unique sound, something like folky soul or soulful folk. Belle & Sebastian have a great new album out now, called ‘Write about love’. I played their wonderful single ‘I want the world to stop’ in ‘Be gentle with my ears ’ two weeks ago. The closing track from Ella Fitzgerald is composed by the master himself, Burt Bacharach. Enjoy!
