Tuesday-JamsSharonda from Brazen Babe Reviews came up with this “meme” called Tuesday Jams. Her idea is simple: share a song you’ve been loving like crazy lately.

What’s your jam this week?

Here’s mine:

A few weeks ago I got to go south for nine days. And on two of those days I got to go to Jazz Fest, the Jazz Fest…the one in New Orleans (New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival). I got muddy, sunburnt, and fell in love (or back in love) with some artists. My next few weeks of Tuesday Jams will highlight a few them.

This week’s is Paloma Faith. I’d heard a few of her tunes prior to spotting her on the Jazz Fest lineup. And thanks to her (and No Doubt) I got to spent eight hours by myself in front of the Acura stage because the rest of my family wanted to see Chicago instead.

Paloma has a huge voice and a vintage sound I just love. And seeing her live gave me a greater appreciation for how damn well she sings (and how she gets the shimmy/shake going on). Here are a few tunes you should listen to…

Play On

Can’t Rely On You

Paloma closed the set out with a cover of Ike & Tina Turner’s River Deep, Mountain High, citing that we’d recognize it as being something from our side of the pond (she’s English). You get to see her shimmy shake in this one.
