Jill Barber: Encore!

Lately I have been so stressed out that I couldn’t sleep at night. I needed some music to put my mind at ease and Jill Barber’s Encore! was the perfect remedy. I have not heard of Jill Barber before, but her French singing soothed my brain immediately. Her beautiful voice accompanied by an orchestrated swing on “Plus je t’embrasse” lifted my spirit. The whoa-whoa horn section on “Ménilmontant“ brought back the good old Louis Armstrong’s Hot Fives and Hot Sevens vibes. Encore! is a French jazz record to kick back and relax.
