Laura Zakian’s ‘Songs for Modern Lovers’ has brought a fresh, elegant approach to a wide range
of songs without ever losing the heart.
There are fresh colours to the jazz palette with skilful, beautifully arranged interpretations of some great contemporary songs
from the likes of John Martyn and Paul Weller to redefined covers of classics from the American songbook.
I love her version of I Thought About You with its stylish, cool and slightly dark hued approach.
So an iced bourbon, a mellow evening and a song for a thoroughly modern romance? It’s all here.
