This estrogen-heavy compendium features 13 classic jazz tracks from legendary female artists such as: Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington. It most certainly won’t be hard to listen to this LP without recognizing some of the most famous songs ever recorded, of which include: Fly Me To The Moon, Feeling Good and Put A Spell On You.
Derek Vincent Smith, or Pretty Lights as you probably know him, had this to say about working together with Verve Records on these classic tracks…
“Nina Simone makes me smile, cry, laugh and have a deeper sense of understanding myself all at the same time. Add to that, nearly every one of her songs has that kind of power. The ability to channel and express that kind of raw, spirit shaking soul every time she sings a song is, in my experience, incredibly rare. I don’t think I’ve ever really said this, but when I really think about it, there is no musician in all of time that has affected me like her. Real talk. The opportunity to remix her song, ‘I Put A Spell On You’ was an awesome opportunity and an indescribable experience.”
The giveaway will officially start on Wednesday August 28th so be sure to check back with us then for your chance to win this sick ass vinyl LP courtesy of Verve Records. For more info, check out the links we have included below!
