Alice Smith - Dream
It's so good to see live music while sitting a few feet away at a table, rather than standing squashed between drunk people in a big crowd like most gigs I go to. This more relaxed setting catered perfect to Alice Smith, who performed an acoustic set at the Blue Note Jazz Bar in the West Village last night. Her refreshingly unique singing style is what makes Alice so intriguing. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but it's almost as if she sounds 'lazy' when blending notes and words together. Whatever it is, it works.
