Live performance and chat with Ala.Ni, accompanied on guitar by Marvin Dolly
 
Channeling a little Julie London and Mary Ford, with a bit of Billie Holiday, Ala.Ni recently stepped out from a career of background vocals to taking charge of a solo career. British singer-songwriter Ala.Ni's dreamy style would fit nicely in an earlier era of torchy performers. Ala.Ni just released her debut album, "You & I'" and sang some of the songs live on Irene's show.

Always especially impressed by voice w/ sparse accompaniment. What a lovely instrument she has.

Hey! Really liking this. Need to chill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/7/17 10:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

She's like a combination of Eartha Kitt & Josephine Foster. Extraordinary, Thank You.

...& it's harder to play restrained & precise than people think, too...

beautiful
  Tue. 2/7/17 10:23pm farmer pete:

It is fair to say that on many, many of those old TV shows, the "live" acts were just lip-synching and air-playing. At least the modern contest shows feature actual talent. It'd be nice if they had good songs and stuff... Sigh. Viva WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/7/17 10:26pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yay...this is so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/7/17 10:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Greetings, all!
  Tue. 2/7/17 10:56pm KP:

I wrote a mini review of "1945" and just put it on FB. Joy was really appreciative but I never got back to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/7/17 10:59pm Irene Trudel:

Yes KP, I really love that Joy Askew album! I've been meaning to ask her back to play on my show.

Good evening, Irene! That Joy Askew album reminds me of "Odessa."
