Sharon Musgrave: Selah

Yesterdays post about Bass-o-matic brought my attention back to its great vocalist Sharon Musgrave. So I looked around a bit to see what she is up to now.

It turns out that she is an accomplished jazz singer with lots of collaborations with the creme de la creme of the international jazz scene.

She has returned to live in Canada, where she grew up and has released a solo album "Selah" in 2002.

Here is the title track, a wonderful spoken-word-jazz number which I like for its relaxed groove, the excellent instrumentation and lack of preachiness (can you hear me Ursula Rucker?!). It´s aural honey.
