Sunday Session – Jeff Buckley

Video

Last week I dug out a cd that I hadn’t heard for a while. WH and I were introduced to Jamie Cullum when my sister gave us a cd of his many years ago. On the cd he did a cover version of another favourite artist of mine. I really like this live, jazz version of Jeff Buckley’s song…

Second song for this week is the man himself, Jeff Buckley. I’ve been fascinated by his voice since the very first time I heard this particular song on Triple J many years ago. The night that he played a concert in Perth I remember thinking ” I’ll definitely have to catch him the next time he’s in town! ” Unfortunately that opportunity never came. So sad that he passed away at such a young age. With his insightful lyrics, versatile voice,  unusual chords and guitar riffs, and the amazing grooves set by the drummer, I’d have to say that Jeff Buckley is one of my all-time favourite artists.
