MUSIC IS TRUTH
Love the venturing out into a new area of kinda a bluesy gospel vibe here. Francesca captures a special quality and elements on this traditional song and her interpretation is really nice. it has a simple piano accompaniment that could be developed perhaps on a future release, even though I liked the singing and arrangement, I know Francesca could rework and re-jig this tune even more with a a bit slower bluesy gospel vibe , the intro captures that gospel feeling even more so and lays the foundation for the song and I would suggest finding some voicings for the piano that moves less and focuses more on the vocals. Here is an arrangement that I really like. Slower and more folk bluesy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utEu0wylJBo
about the song ""Sinner Man" or "Sinnerman" is an African American traditional spiritual song that has been recorded by a number of performers and has been incorporated in many other of the media and arts. The lyrics describe a sinner attempting to hide from divine justice on Judgement Day. It was recorded in the 1950s by Les Baxter, the Swan Silvertones, the Weavers and others, before Nina Simone recorded an extended version in 1965"
Where will the sinner man run to? Where will he hide? He can't. We can't run from ourselves, whether we are a sinner man or sinner woman.
One of the most talented musicians and songcrafters at IMP. In this case Francesca does a marvelous cover "Sinner man" its a arrangement that is simple and effective. Wonderful vocals. I would love to see Francesca get some happening bass percussion and guitar going on this one and develop an arrangement for this bluesy gospel tune. As it stands, she is one of IMPS young stars building her catalog and laying the groundwork for future success in the music industry
