Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Ann Savoy & Her Sleepless Knights

If Dreams Come True

2007-06-23

Singer Ann Savoy is a fixture on the Cajun music scene as a member of the Savoy Doucet Band. This disc finds her spreading her stylistic wings with string driven, jazzy takes on standards such as Benny Goodman’s "If Dreams Come True", Hart and Rodgers’ "Bewitched,Bothered and Bewildered" and Django Renhardt’s "Melodie Au Crepuscule". The overall feel is much closer to sophisticated French cabaret than the steamy bayou music that has been her calling card but there is much to like here. Smitty
