Holly Cole: Reinventing the familiar

HollyCole.jpg

Canadian vocalist, Holly Cole, is one of greatest song interpreters alive. 

She can take a song you think you know and bring something out of it that you’ve never heard before. 

For example, her latest CD, Night, contains Holly’s inventive re-imagining of a James Bond theme (You Only Live Twice), as well as songs by Danny O’Keefe, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, Rod McKuen and Gordon Lightfoot. 

In this wonderful studio session with KPLU’s Abe Beeson, Holly treats us to three songs from the new CD, including one of her own compositions, You’ve Got A Secret.

Holly’s band includes Aaron Davis (piano), George Koeller (bass), Davide DiRenzo (drums) and John Johnson (horns).

Songs:

  1. I Only Have Eyes For You
  2. Walk Away
  3. You’ve Got A Secret

Abe grew up in Western Washington, a 3rd generation Seattle/Tacoma kid. It was as a student at Pacific Lutheran University that Abe landed his first job at KNKX, editing and producing audio for news stories. It was a Christmas Day shift no one else wanted that gave Abe his first on-air experience which led to overnights, then Saturday afternoons, and started hosting Evening Jazz in 1998.
