Having wowed tastemakers across the board with her debut album, "Barefoot In Your Kitchen", in 2012 (Gilles Peterson made it his Album of the Week a year ago) saucy songstress and culinary linguist Bev Lee Harling returns with a one-off single covering one of her favourite songs of all time.
The Peggy Lee classic, "Why Don't You Do Right?", was recorded by many artists in the 1950's and 60's, including Della Reese, whose version provided the inspiration for this take, but seemed to have become a bit of a forgotten gem for contemporary recording artists, until now that is.
This three track single features Bev's original take plus a pair of cracking mixes from two of Europe's finest production outfits with an ear for a classic tune and a touch of jazz.
Italy's Suonho has found fame recently with his tasteful edits, on-point remixes and his recent re-versions of Brazilian classics. Here he takes Bev's interpretation to the dance floor with a bass heavy four-to-the-floor mix that will please jazz and house heads alike.
Our very own Colman Brothers are also back, adding a little of their trademark 'Cha Cha' magic to Bev's sassy vocals, and creating a mid-tempo shuffler that should please fans of both them and the lady herself!
A package that should help stave off the hunger for more Bev Lee Harling material until her new album drops in early 2014.
