Lately I’m enjoying the album “What Color is Love” by Terry Callier.
It is hard to define a single genre that this album belongs to. “What Color is Love” is an elegant collection of folk, funk, jazz and blues. Callier’s tender lyrics and passionate voice are beautiful elements that give the album continuity. Maybe this makes the album so interesting to listen to, over and over again, from start to finish.
At the same time, these songs are very comforting. Perfect for cold, rainy spring days in Oslo.
You Goin’ to Miss Your Candyman was funny enough my gateway song to this album. I first heard the song on a Late Night Tales compilation, made by the Cinematic Orchestra. (The Late Night Tales compilations are a great way to discover new favourites and are small gems in themselves.)
