Editorial Reviews

Review

Working in the tradition of jazz classics like Ella, Nina, and Billie, one-named Dafni has created a stellar new CD

I love Dafni's new CD Charlie's Lonely Sunday so much I'm thinking of marrying it. Right now I'm cleaning the spit off it because we were making out a little while ago, but now I want to play it again and all that good makeout juice is making it skip.

The CD moves smoothly between swinging rockabilly songs like "Dimes" to tango-esque numbers like "Let's Pretend" to folky heartwrenchers like "Broken Letter" to, oh hell, every song is a revelation. On my new paramour, I mean Dafni's CD, Dafni sings under the influence of classic jazz vocalists like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone (or, if you prefer, think Norah Jones or Madeleine Peyroux for more modern touchstones). It's just a super cool theme record about Charlie's lonely Sunday, I guess. Me likey! That's all you need to know.

I'm sorry, Dafni, but I don't have time to write a review. Your CD and I have eloped and we're leaving on our honeymoon. I think we'll be very happy together. Don't try to follow us. Our love is too strong to be broken.

Listen Dafni, you can play your songs for your SLO shows, but your CD and I will be parasailing in Mexico. Don't hate your CD. It couldn't deny our mutual love anymore than I could. --Glen Starkey, San Luis Obispo New Times, Sept 2007

Product Description

Drawing inspiration from classic jazz vocalists (Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald), modern-day chanteuses (Eleni Mandell, Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux), and denizens of the Los Angeles alt-country scene (Randy Weeks, Mike Stinson, Tony Gilkyson), with Charlie's Lonely Sunday, her third album and first to be released on the Boronda Records label, Dafni presents a collection of 13 songs spanning a range of genres from the rockabilly hoedown of the opener "Dimes" to tracks featuring Latin ("Let s Pretend", "Lonely Sunday"), country ("This One Dance", "Never Tell You Why"), Americana ("Broken Letter", "Carried Away"), and jazz-tinged ("Complicated", "Honey Honey") grooves. Dafni s band had grown so comfortable playing together during a year of regular performances that they recorded the basic tracks for all of these songs live---vocals included---in a single day at producer Charlie McGovern's Big Ol' Studio in North Hollywood (two of the songs were later rerecorded on another day again live), providing the album with a consistency that captures the vibe of the band's shows. In addition to 11 of Dafni's original compositions, Charlie's Lonely Sunday contains a Cajun-style cover of labelmate Tracy Huffman's "Bottom of a Well" and a country romp---the saucy "Down and Dirty"---co-written with L.A. songstress Sarah Stanley.

This is a very cool record that really grows on you. Outstanding musicianship combined with Dafni's lovely singing makes for a quite fun listen moving from the good side of country to jazzy and chanteuse. I listen to it a lot. Nice work!
