Llorca with Nicole Graham – Indigo Blues

This Beat Is Mine! (*) Llorca with Nicole Graham – Indigo Blues (F-Communications)

‘Indigo Blues’ brings me back to the souvenir of a festival we had here in Lisbon by the beginning of the 2000’s. This is where I happened to see performing this young man along with musicians on stage. As a matter of fact, I didn’t know where he was coming from back then, but I just loved what he was doing. He spread so much generosity, with this Bossa jazzish bliss blowing my mind. I couldn’t resist buying the album (‘New Comer’) soon after. Never heard of him anymore from then. Such a talent he had, not to mention the female singer (Nicole Graham).

Any idea as to what they’ve ever done since this ‘Indigo Blues’ by the way?

Overview
– A native of Florida Nicole Graham wrote most of her story in France as a matter of fact. From working in Parisian cabarets to collaborations with activists of the local scene. Thus displaying a vocal ability and a versatility which allowed her to embrace different styles with a unique feel. Such as on the memorable Bossa jazzy ‘Indigo Blues’ by the likes of Llorca back in 2001 for instance. But also with Catalan FC & Sven Love on ‘Private Number’ two years before. Or with Alexkid on ‘On My Mind’ for Josh Wink‘s Ovum Recordings label. Not to mention her cover version of Cole Porter‘s ‘My Heart Belongs To Daddy’ along with Playin’ For The City back in 2000.
Quite surprisingly, she progressively disappeared from the radars after 2002.
