Ms. Ferrell

The weather in Los Angeles the past few days or a bit longer has been amazing. Rainy, gray, overcast. Interrupted by annoying stretches of sunshine. Even before the weather started hitting blue notes, I'd pulled down and been immersing myself in the music of Rachelle Ferrell. Specifically First Instrument and Live in Montrux 91-97. But one of my favorite things she has ever done is the song "Nothing in the Middle," which can be found on the CD, Soul Satisfaction: A Collection of Nu Soul Gems. "Nothing in the Middle" is amazing. According to the CD liner notes, the song was recorded live for inclusion on a forthcoming live CD by Rachelle but I've heard nothing more about said CD since. This Youtube item below is really just the audio track, but check it out if you're not familiar with it.
