How about a taste of jazz and pop this wonderful Friday evening. Let's check out the smooth tones of miss Roxi Copland.
Roxi Copland performs throughout the US & Canada, entertaining with an engaging combination of original songs and innovative jazz/pop arrangements of everything from Ella to the Offspring. Copland’s unique genre is probably best summed up in the words of one particularly eloquent reviewer as “a possibly schizophrenic but absolutely brilliant concoction of jazz, pop and soul.” She’s recently been described as “Norah Jones with bite”. Beautifully blurring the lines between jazz & pop, this talented singer/songwriter/pianist won’t disappoint.I'm really digging her new album Pretty Lies.
More about that later, but here's a trio of songs from the album.
In Love With Trouble This is a live version with her band
Step on the Gas
Straightaway Jazz in July in Altoona, Iowa
And finally today, although the season is a long way off, this is destined to become a holiday classic.
I'll be groped for Christmas (TSA Edition) I flew to San Francisco a week ago and found myself having a disconcertingly intimate experience with the good folks at TSA. Since I'm anticipating the same overly exuberant greeting at Christmas, I thought I'd write this little ditty about it. Recorded by the brilliant Steve Capp at Capp Audio Productions.
Keep an eye open for Roxi's new album, Pretty Lies.
Roxi Copland's first full-length solo acoustic album - just her and her baby grand. If you're a fan of her solo shows, you want this one.
"Jazz/pop musician Roxi Copland is a petite powerhouse. Even when hidden behind a Baby Grand, her presence is huge thanks to a voluptuous voice and fierce piano skills." ~Seattle's Crosscut
