Marie Dahlstrom Gets Moody Over Patrice Rushen's 'Forget Me Nots'
Thursday, April 10, 2014
After the successful double dose of The Renditions and The Gloom EPs from last year, Marie Dahlstrom became soul-jazz's newest disciple and one of my new favorite acts. Dahlstrom is yet another name I trust to twist a classic into a specialty item, and with Patrice Rushen's 1982 hit single, "Forget Me Nots", the Danish dame has once again revitalized a beloved favorite and fashions it just for her. She brings along YouTube star, Jeremy Passion to reassemble the song into a duet and chooses to transform the funk classic into a love lorn meditative. As I will be forever partial to Rushen's original (because how can you deny that fantastic groove?), hearing this reversal take further explains why Dahlstrom coming at us with a second part to her Renditions series is a blessing for us all.
