Send the back up dancers home and tell William Baker to extend his vacation, Mademoiselle Kylie is doing another “stripped back” performance.
Here the Aussie songbird turns her hand to cool jazz, covering Blossom Dearie‘s ‘Try Your Wings’ on the annual NYE televisual special: Jools Holland Hootenanny.
This is absolutely gorgeous, isn’t it? And you see why Kylie‘s been hinting at a jazz album for years because it’s a style she could pull off to a tee. Having said that, a jazz album will rock the dance/pop mojo that she’s solidified her brand with for over ten years and worse, it’s hard enough as it is for Kylie to constantly live in the shadows of her famous little sister – you don’t want this record to draw comparisons to Mammii Dannii‘s flawless Afterlife Lounge Mixes.
Watch her other performance – ‘Better Than Today’ with Jools and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra:
Expect for Kylie to make Aussie tour date announcements soon for her Les Folies: Aphrodite concert.
Other guests who performed on last night’s 2010/2011 Jools Holland Hootenanny include Cee Lo Green, Vampire Weekend, Rumer and Plan B.
