By far and away my favourite cover of ‘Surrey with the fringe on top’ is that by US jazz singer Rene Marie. Who would have thought that such a jaunty, twee-sounding little number could end up so slow and sultry?

From her website: ‘Rene is proof that sound is what gives meaning to words and music is what gives feeling to hearing…’

Thank you for the recommendation–I’m appreciating jazz more and more these days, but don’t know enough about it.

*whisper* my father was from Oklahoma and I was born in Kansas right next door *continued whisper* it’s not very hip OR steamy there. *whisper* they’re very repressed. *continued whisper* so I’m glad she made it out. xoxo

Excuse me, but I live in Oklahoma!

And while I agree that it is not hip and not steamy – I am far from repressed – thank you!

It’s O – pressed. And I am dying to make it out, too.
