Solitaire Miles & Howard Levy duet for Valentine's Day
"Solitaire Miles and Howard Levy collaborate in a starry-eyed duet for Valentine's Day with "Call Me Darling", a retro crossover Jazz/R&B favorite. The duo is very adept at discovering and re-arranging long forgotten musical treasures, and they don't disappoint with this romantic, bluesy ballad.
Levy arranged the song and plays 3 harmonicas, filling in rhythm riffs and soloing on piano. Their dynamic phrasing doesn't need an entire band or orchestra, you'll feel the flirt in the first 5 seconds with Miles' beguiling, husky acapella intro, beckoning the listener to call her "Darling" and thrill her with words of love.
The tune is a straight-up love song, with Levy's novel arrangement and Miles sultry jazz vocal tinged with blues and roots. The duo have created their own sui generis, crossing genres to create a sound that reflects the best of Chicago blues, jazz and roots all rolled into one." - JM Reid, Chicago Music Guide
