Amy Winehouse ‘Jazz N’ Blues’ Track Surfaces
As fans remember Amy Winehouse today on the one-year anniversary of her death, an unreleased early recording of the singer has surfaced. As reported by Diffuser, the track is called 'Jazz N' Blues,' an appropriate title since the singer occasionally incorporated old-school elements of jazz and blues into her pop and R&B songs.
Since Amy's dad Mitch has declared that he will release at least one more album of her unreleased music, 'Jazz N' Blues' could someday see a proper release. But for now, listening to the track brings back memories of the talented artist as she sings about constantly being broke due to excessive shopping.
Though Winehouse didn't write all of her own music, she reportedly penned this track with Edward Bigham in 2001, two years before she emerged with her debut 'Frank.' Her personality comes through when she sings about the temptation to "throw my cash away" and "blow it all on bags and shoes." The song features layered vocals during the chorus and even the clink of cash registers.
Winehouse died at age 27 on July 23, 2011 from alcohol poisoning. Her most recent album, 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures,' was released five months after her death and included the single 'Our Day Will Come' and her Grammy-winning duet with Tony Bennett, 'Body and Soul.'
