Summertime / Taboo
Availability: Out of stock
Two sublime sides from femme fatale Sylvie Mora. Both Summertime and Taboo are of course well established standards, but the treatment here of each is really unique.
Summertime gets a truly expansive work over, switching between soft and slow paced acapella vocal sections which then erupt into explosive brass and drum-led riffs. On the other side, Taboo, perhaps the quintessential jazz exotica work of the early to mid-century, sounds more seductive than ever before by virtue of Mora's sultry, slinky vocals, and once again the backing orchestra is fantastic.
