I don't usually post the same song twice on here, let alone twice in a month, but this acoustic version of Faouzia's "You Don't Even Know Me" is breathtaking, even compared to the original video upthread. The simple piano accompaniment really throws the spotlight on what has to be one of the finest voices in popular music right now. Still no date for an actual album but she's got quite a few original songs out now, so I hope it is coming soon.

And more from Perpetuum Jazzile. A Billy Joel classic to start.


Some Cancon of the best kind. "Both Sides Now" is one of my favorite songs of all time and I first heard it sung by a school choir back around grade 5 or 6 IIRC. I don't usually like hearing this song slowed down (Joni's original is surprisingly uptempo) but the soloists are fantastic singers.


And this choir knows how to party, by the way. The trio doing leads is terrific. There seems to be a lot of great individual talent in this choir.

And from a live concert, a song I never, ever in a million years expected to hear sung by a choir.


EDIT: Damn, I did not expect them to actually do the guitar solo using vocal tricks.
