After a string of R&B/Soul releases, Nigerian vocalist Douyé (pronounced Doe-Yay) has focused on her jazz roots for her latest album.

Playlist Information

A playlist and listen-again audio are available for 1 month by clicking the play button above after the broadcast.

Douyé's new album is titled 'Daddy Said So,' - and is aptly dedicated to her late father, who passed away when she was 11. Of her dad, she states "jazz was introduced to me by my father - who always played records around the house. He regularly sat me down and told me to listen closely to the music, that jazz was life." The album features interpretations of some classic standards, and we'll hear her on a Monk classic - 'Round Midnight,' as well as Gershwin's immortal 'Summertime.'

Further to a previous positive comment I made relating to this truly gifted artist, I've been listening to more of her sublime singing and to say the least, I'm enchanted. Good parents provide a positive, lifelong influence on their loved ones. Douye's father clearly was an inspiration.
