Canadian vocalist, Holly Cole, is one of greatest song interpreters alive.
She can take a song you think you know and bring something out of it that you’ve never heard before.
For example, her latest CD, Night, contains Holly’s inventive re-imagining of a James Bond theme (You Only Live Twice), as well as songs by Danny O’Keefe, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, Rod McKuen and Gordon Lightfoot.
In this wonderful studio session with Jazz24/KPLU’s Abe Beeson, Holly treats us to three songs from the new CD, including one of her own compositions, You’ve Got A Secret.
Holly’s band includes Aaron Davis (piano), George Koeller (bass), Davide DiRenzo (drums) and John Johnson (horns).
