I don't get jazzy here often enough, so with that in mind, this week's Vid Pick comes from jazz singer Jessi Teich. Teich has style that uses jazz as the backbone of her music, while including hints of soul, blues, and pop, and her latest single is "Diggin' A Ditch."
"Diggin' A Ditch" is off of Teich's Twisted Soul album, which was released earlier this year. I sat down with Teich to talk about it way back in January, in an interview that featured discussions about cheesesteaks, a terrifying surgery, and singing along to Taylor Swift. If you missed it the first time, check it out, but first give "Diggin' A Ditch" a spin, and enjoy the very cool sound, and style, of Jessi Teich.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
