Jazz Mino – Blue Eyes

Screen shot 2015-03-24 at 20.07.43Drawing on a collection of the most influential jazz and soul artists, Jazz Mino brings that must-sought level of being effortlessly cool to her music, with a little added kookiness thrown in for good measure.

The marching beat of the track is conflicted by the smooth backing vocals and strings that sit behind Jazz’s charming voice, which itself has that slightly-nasal quality that has made incredible careers for a selection of divas and soul legends. There’s such a full, warm sound created that embraces both the cool and pop sides of Ms Mino who wiles away her tale of adoration as she attempts to ensnare the typical hunk (see the video below which is a great example of her enthusiasm and character).

From the very first hits right through to the wistful conclusion Jazz Mino has you wrapped around her little finger as you fall head-first for her story-telling and, before you know it, you’ll be on the edge of your seat waiting to see how her adventure ends. Well, almost – I reckon you can figure out what happens…
