The first song of the second year brings us once again to New Orleans. In the last few years many musicians and dancers moved to the city in the south of the US to live their passion and to help enforce traditional jazz music and dance to a thriving revival.
Meschiya Lake “fell in love with and felt immediately embraced by the culturally rich and one of a kind city of New Orleans” while touring with a circus troupe.
In 2007, she started singing with the Loose Marbles on the French Quarters Royal Street.
Soon after they toured the US and Europe and some of you – like me – might have seen and heard them the first time in Herrang.
In the Spring of 2009, Meschiya formed The Little Big Horns Jazz Band and in 2010, they eventually released their first album “Lucky Devil“.
Check out Meschiya's website for more informations about her and the band.
Comes Love is a typical song in the modern New Orleans tradition. The “dry” steady rhythm section is straightly pushing through.
Meschiya sings very sentimentally, it's impossible that this tune doesn't touch you somehow!
Perfect for Balboa dancing in a medium tempo (actually, great for teaching as well).
