Daisy People Music

Jovan Milovanovic
Duration: 5:56

"Daisy People Music" is the first single from Jovan Milovanovic Quartet's upcoming album Away from you. The name of the composition is an analogy to the Branford Marsalis album Crazy People Music as it is inspired by the music from that album. Daisy also symbolizes something childish and playful.

Better Than Picasso at Midnite

Tony Adamo
Duration: 3:53

"Adamo is a brilliantly creative talent whose recordings are so hip, so singular that they're something that you don't just listen to; you experience them. From his past efforts, we know that he dwells in a world where words are 'sing-spoke,' told with a heavy dollop of jazz names served up Cool. He's a griot whose game is not rap and it's not 'vocalese,' but a love child of both genres. It's an acquired taste, for sure. But, it's musical heroin— one just gets hooked." —Nicholas F. Mondello, All About Jazz

Je te verrai is the long-forgotten French version of the American evergreen I'll be seeing you.
