Bev Lee Harling

Why Don't You Do Right?

Wah Wah 45s

Released: 3rd June 2013 | 2 track vocal jazz single

Having wowed tastemakers across the board with her debut album, Barefoot In Your Kitchen, in 2012 (Gilles Peterson made it his Album of the Week a year ago) saucy songstress and culinary linguist Bev Lee Harling returns with a one-off single covering one of her favourite songs of all time.

The Peggy Lee classic, Why Don't You Do Right?, was recorded by many artists in the 1950's and 60's, including Della Reese, whose version provided the inspiration for this take, but seemed to have become a bit of a forgotten gem for contemporary recording artists, that is, until now.

This limited edition 7-inch release features a pair of cracking mixes from two of Europe's finest production outfits with an ear for a classic tune and a touch of jazz.

Italy's Suonho has found fame recently with his tasteful edits, on-point remixes and his recent re-versions of Brazilian classics. Here he takes Bev's interpretation to the dance floor with a bass heavy four-to-the-floor mix that will please jazz and house heads alike.

On the flip, our very own Colman Brothers are back, adding a little of their trademark 'Cha Cha' magic to Bev's sassy vocals, and creating a mid-tempo shuffler that should please fans of both them and the lady herself!

The original vocal version is also available via an accompanying digital package, and should help stave off the hunger for more Bev Lee Harling material until her new album drops in early 2014.

"I really, really like this!"
Gilles Peterson, BBC 6Music
"I really love Bev's voice and generally like her unique sound! She really does have a great sound that stands out & grabs me!"
DJ Format, UK Hip Hop Legend
"A luscious mix of lounging soul, pots’n’pans percussion and kitchen sink drama."
Wrongtom, Tru Thoughts
