Mmm! - Room Eleven

Mmm indeed, both at the rich jazzy voice of singer Janne Schra, and the four other talented musicians who provide the landscape against which it sounds so inviting.

Room Eleven are pretty huge in Holland and elsewhere to judge by their extensive touring schedule..& it's easy to see why after listening to their second album - "Mmm Gumbo?". Sure, it might be too jazzy in parts for some tastes, although songs like 'Hey Hey Hey' are just downright excellent pop.

Recorded in New York with the assistance of Dayna Kurtz, sharing her producer, and featuring Dayna on 'Not Jealous'; this is a really rewarding listen - now I gotta seek out ‘Six White Russians And A Pink Pussycat

They recorded a timely, and sublime version of Frank Loesser's 'Baby it's Cold Outside' with Donavon Frankenreiter in Amsterdam a few weeks ago; and quite marvellous it is.
