“In My Dreams” – The Sky Blues (now known as Bird Mancini)
This hidden gem is smack in the middle of a great blues CD, Blues from the Hub (Boston Blues Society, 2001). It’s a blatantly sexy song, and if you let it, it’ll evoke the dark smoky jazz club with the sultry and sage torch singer performing for one bartender and one lone patron. Yeah, that one bar-fly who keeps putting bills in the smudged glass bowl sitting at the edge of the stage. That one sad man, who has dulled the ice cold stabs of a broken heart with the heat of bourbon and the voice of Ruby Bird.
Or maybe it’s a couple – finding relief and release with each other, their inhibitions sent packing by this powerhouse of a song.
Either way, it’s fantastic.
