Incredible is what I’m calling this, this is as real as it gets. UK artist Nefer Davis who takes on this classic Billie Holiday tune on his first recording project(did I say first?) firmly puts his vocal in the approach of a deftly talented musician. It’s almost most like one of those great twin tenor battles of the Basie band when Nefer and the tenor intersect on this track. Gorgeous interpretation of this music.

What I’m asking from the GFM readership is to checkout the music of Nefer Davis and then pass it on. Nefer is currently working on a campaign with kickstarter to fund his project. You can find out more about the project here. You can find a copy of Nefer’s bio here.
