Musical Interlude: Outsourced to Contest Winner!

July 8th, 2014 at 9:29 am

Not only did MW win the upside-down “where’s JB” contest, but he then picked a smokin’ cut for our musical edification and uplift.

He writes:

I started looking up female scat singers and listened to some Ella Fitzgerald to compare my friend, Lena Seikaly. Now, Lena is young, but she has a silk to her voice that I haven’t ever heard before. She’s a local talent –UMD classical music grad and a product of Falls Church, Virginia. Have a listen to “After You’ve Gone

Love that bass and voice duet in the intro and damn, the woman scats up a storm–a lot of sax players would like to swing it that hard.
Enjoy, and thanks to MW for picking up the musical slack while I’m on the road.

    When MW guessed Aspen before I even had a chance to enter, I was disappointed. But now I am thrilled that he did win, because I am so grateful to learn of Lena Seikaly. Terrific local talent deserves to make it big.
