Title - 'For What It's Worth' [CD Single]
Artist - Rebecca Angel
Having already released the Christmas single 'My Favorite Time of Year' (2015) and then 'Jet Samba' (2016), Rebecca Angel then brought out her sultry and soulful debut EP, What We Had (2018).
Drawing from a fresh whirlwind of classic and contemporary influences, that was followed by the 2019 singles 'Thoughts & Prayers,' 'Summer Song,' and another Christmas single, a cover of the Christmas classic 'Santa Baby' (originally recorded in 1953 by the late Eartha Kitt).
And now, the emerging NYC-based singer is back once again with the highly anticipated new single, 'For What It's Worth' (out October 26th via Timeless Grooves Records).
A cover of the Stephen Stills-written, Buffalo Springfield-sung 'For What It's Worth (Stop, Hey What's That Sound) (often shortened to simply 'For What It's Worth'), it was originally recorded on December 5th, 1966, released as a single on Atco Records on December 23rd, 1966, and peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the spring of 1967.
Whilst striving never to alter such a classic song, but simply remodel it, Angel brings forth a rather soulful twist on Stephen Stills timeless protest classic.
Indeed, Angel's jazz inflections here on this reimagining are undoubtedly a testament to the producer, veteran jazz/R&B keyboardist/producer Jason Miles, and they are mesmerizingly anchored by an array of top session musicians, including: guitarist Dean Brown, bassist Reggie Washington, drummer Gene Lake, and percussionist Bashiri Johnson.
It also features powerful soloing by Brown and Rebecca's father, Dennis Angel, on trumpet, as well as some excellently layered vocal feathering from the magnetically inspirational singer Maya Azucena.
'For What It's Worth' is scheduled to be released on October 26th, 2020 on Timeless Groove Records.
