This week's free iTunes download is a rare one. In the song details, it reads "Genre: Jazz." That's right, jazz.
The song "Worrisome Heart" comes from the new talented singer/songwriter Melody Gardot. The Philadelphia native started writing and recording songs after being struck by car while on a bike at the age of 19. Music was suggested as rehabilitation to sharpen cognitive skills. It would seem that she was destined to find music.
Melody has a soulful voice and is a skillful songwriter in the vein of Diana Krall. The song is sultry and smooth. The muted trumpet weaving in and out of the vocals add to the song's classic charm.
This song isn't for everyone, but if you want to be transported to a time of black and white movies and smoky jazz clubs, check out this song.
