Lyrics
when the night begins to fold its arms
and the chill in the air has its way
i'm getting anxious to know
if you're ready to go
but i'm hoping you will stay

when the moon hides its face
it's dark maroon in outer space
if you think it's begun
in just a wink it's all undone

alley cat you follow me
so where you at? why can't i see?
every night you're on your feet
the same old sight a different street

when the night unfolds its hidden charms
and the chill in the air melts way
when the warm breezes blow
and we're getting to know
the lights across the bay

and the starlight shimmers in your eyes
with the milky way lighting the way
i suspect all this time
you've been reading my mind
there's nothing left to say

(c)2008 Bill Grundmann

Thank you Henri ....
The tune is all SmokeyVW ... I just did my interpretation all over it .... I should have gone back and played around with the levels in some places ... but usually I just tinker to a point and then post it ... thanks for the listen and the comment

Very good
Well, this is unexpected. Glad I found this. Great sound bed (love the bouble bass and the drum sound you've got here) and excellent vocal performance. Love the dual vocals when they come in. Love it.

Thanks Dolby ...
.. I am a huge fan of multiple vocal tracks ... and sometimes find it hard to stick to just one or two .... I often tend to overcrowd a song with too many vocal tracks .... and jazz is a genre where you do not want to do that ... less is more .... (but I still have a hard time listening to one vocal track all bare and laid out there when it's my voice). Thanks for listening and commenting.

smooth
love it when you start to wander around vocally on the melody - really jazzy,late night in the city feel.Very pleasant and laid back.

Yes ...
... "wander around vocally" .... sometimes it's hard to change up the melody when I have heard two versions already .... but I always try to stray from the norm and just sing out where the music takes me ... which is usually quite far away from the intended melody actually ....hahaha but I enjoy jazz because it allows me the opportunity to try out those odd "stray" notes which sometimes come out sounding almost flat if they were sung in any other genre ... thanks for the listen and comment.

Yes ...
.. I too got that "late night in the city" feel for it .... maybe it was the alley cat struttin his stuff down the street in the starlight that did it ... thanks for stopping by and commenting K .

... this one felt right up my alley when I heard it the first time .... however, I still think I could have gone back and cleaned up some of the off key vocal bits and tweaked the levels some ..... thanks for the listen and the comment.

Bill did a great job with this, and your vocals melt over this like honey-butter on cinnamon toast (oops, I'm drooling.) :-)

wow!
This is Very different from my interpretation of the melodies here. You really have a soulful jazzy voice Alannah. Cool!!!

Alannah said 3975 days ago (July 4th, 2008)
Thanks Terry ....
.. yes I purposely try to stray from what is expected on the melody of music when I hear it ... it's what makes it all so interesting for me .... to see how far I can stray and yet still have it blend out OK and not sound like I am singing one thing and the music is playing another .... but also - I didn't want to just duplicate what both you and Bill had already done .... I needed to put my own personal Alannah-sizing on it - to keep it somewhat mixed up. Thanks for the listen and the comment.

You are so at home in this smoky, jazzy style. The warmth and richness of your voice just shines against this instrumental track, Alannah.
