First Impressions: Amy Winehouse Continues To Play Her Jazz N' Blues

Monday, July 23, 2012


Today marks one year since the tragic passing of Amy Winehouse and if you've been like me, you've been spinning her tunes throughout the day in tribute. It's a known fact that Winehouse has a well-stocked vault of material that she recorded throughout her lifetime. Evidence of the vault being opened happened on Lioness: Hidden Treasures last year, which was released with mixed fan-fare. Personally, I enjoyed it and thought it was a fitting send-off to one of music's most unique personalities and voices. Rumor has it that another collection of unreleased material will be made available soon  thanks to Winehouse's family (way to milk ol' Bessie The Money Cow for all it's worth, right?), but no one could have guessed that a unheard track from the pre-Frank days would surface today. But surprised I shouldn't be considering.... 

"Jazz N' Blues" allegedly was recorded in 2001 with collaborator Edward Bingham and was geared for Winehouse's 2003 debut album, Frank, but in the end it met the cutting room floor. Actually don't let the "unreleased" tag scare you on this one. With neat bass lines and a plucky R&B rhythm, "Jazz N' Blues" is another worthy addition to the short but sweet music catalog from the Dame Winehouse. I really do dig this. Even though it's sad to be hearing all of this stuff after the fact, yet we should be thankful for small pleasures like this that pop-up every now and then to make it seem like she's still with us.
