Eden Brent Track “Love Me ‘Til Dawn” Included In Putumayo’s “Jazz Cafe”

Do you know Putumayo? You really should, and probably do. They’re a record label that rejoices over the many rivers of music that stream across the globe (you’ve likely seen their eye-catching CDs in a coffee shop or three). In addition to introducing recordings and artists from all over the world, Putumayo has donated more than a million dollars to help the worldwide communities from which that music arises.

Their new compilation transports listeners, wherever you are, to jazz cafés all around the globe via tracks by Lee Dorsey, Amanda Martinez, Rosa Passos, Lisa Bassenge and more. Joining artists from Brazil, Senegal, Cuba and beyond: Yellow Dog’s own Eden Brent, whose sultry “Love Me ’Til Dawn” (from her 2008 Yellow Dog release “Mississippi Number One” closes out Jazz Café.  Have yourself a cocktail and have yourself a listen!

The Claudettes’ “She’s So Imaginary”, A Meditation on What We’ve Lost, an Emotional Embrace of What We Have Now

In the middle of NO HOTEL, The Claudettes’ new album full of playfully raucous songs and instrumentals, comes a song born of personal tragedy but bathed in beauty and light.  “She’s So Imaginary” is a vibrant throwback to the sound of ’60s pop-soul. But the inspiration for the song lies in personal tragedies endured by members of The Claudettes, and is set in the aftermath of the heart-rending 2014 Korean ferry disaster.

The new video, which premieres today on Innocent Words, stars Claudettes singer Yana and seven-year-old Roman F. Berkowitz VI, whose evocative misuse of the English language gave the song its title.
