by NomadThe artist of this week's musical sanity break, Melody Gardot, is by special request. Thanks for the suggestion!
It is easy to see why the New Jersey-born Gardot has been compared to that of Nina Simone. In fact, her influences are an eclectic mix from Latin music artists such as Caetano Veloso to Janis Joplin and George Gershwin. She certainly has a classy sound.
And, like all true nomads, Gardot considers herself a "citizen of the world".
First up is one I have dedicated to the president. It is called "Cry Wolf."
Second in the set of three is "Baby I'm A Fool"
And finally, another song which I think applies to most of the people in the White House at the moment. The title? "Your Heart is as Black as Night."
Have a great Sunday, my friends. Be strong and keep smiling.
