UPDATE — Final Mix Released! (See Below)
Long-time readers know that I’m a big fan of Karsh Kale, my old neighbor and the current heavyweight champion of making music with cool people all around the world. For Valentine’s Day, Karsh shared an early mix from a recent collaboration with Blackstratblues (a.k.a., guitarist Warren Mendonsa’s new project after moving on from Indian Rock legends “Zero”).
“Hallelujah / Ode to a Sunny Day” is a straightforward concept: Kale sings a Jeff Buckley-esque interpretation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” over the music to Mendonsa’s “Ode To A Sunny Day”, which was originally featured on 2009’s “The New Album”.
