A Song and a singer

nature Add comments

Among all my friends I’m likely the least musically active. It’s not that I don’t like music. I really do. I listen to musicmatch through most of the day, with quite a varied selection. Few things are as fun for me as getting out my sax and playing with quality musicians, something I haven’t done in a while and something I think I miss deep in my soul these days.

I think it has to do more with my lifestyle. I tend to buy a book more than a cd, and I’m not really in the loop of clubs or other places I would discover a new favorite. Plus, my interests tend not to drift into what would get a lot of radio play.

All this to say I don’t make a lot of comments on music, but that’s just one of those things.

So, when I do find something new it stands out.

Last night I was watching the television show Bones, which up to this point had been an interesting show, no highs or lows. I like to keep two or three shows during the week that I pay attention to, finding the shows I like tend to fall off schedules before too long. So, I got to watching this show and found it took a new step up in last nights episode. It was moving and insightful and quite, quite good. There are people who know people working for this show. But maybe that’s not it. Towards the end when there was a wrapping up of the various insights a song began to play, a song that in my mind perfected the episode.

I loved her voice. There is a deep, haunting quality, reminding of Dido, only more settled. But they didn’t credit the song, so I hunted it down today.

Susan Enan. No album out yet, surprisingly, but apparently one in the works.
