Reflections on a Jazz revelation.
I never latched on to Amy Winehouse when she was still alive. I thought she was hyped too much at the time. Her music was too subtle to reach me thru the noise of the crowd.

Julia Werup | "The Thrill Is Gone"

#Releases #Jazz #RnB

Magnificent interpretation of a classic
After fantastic reviews of the album “The Thrill Of Loving You”, here is a brilliant edit of the lead single “The Thrill Is Gone”. Julia Werup’s interpretation is magnificent and her vocal performance is just outstanding. The musical performance by the band sounds refreshing and modern. Julia Werup and her band are making this tune their own, and that’s a big task as it has earlier been performed by jazz legends such as Chet Baker, Sammy Davis Jr., Ella Fitzgerald amongst others.
