Bahamas, May 2nd, 2019 – Bahamian Jazz Artist, Anuschka Wright, is
releasing her newest single, “Black Coffee” on Friday, May 3rd, 2019.
was a fun project for Anuschka as the song is not one that she
originally felt would fit her style or vocal expression yet still, the
song kept presenting itself to her. After adding the track to her
repertoire as a mere filler she started to receive great feedback on her
interpretation of the piece. One fan in particular happened to be Oz
Yilmaz of Pelicula Films, who would later be the creative eye behind the
beautiful video representation of the single.
it turns out, Anuschka is the inspiration behind a current film project
of Oz. The film will follow the life of a young Jazz vocalist in the
late 60’s as she navigates all the trials that come in the pursuit of
her dreams in music. Black Coffee is a jazz standard written in 1948 by
Sonny Burke with lyrics by Paul Francis Webster. And though a Jazz
standard in mood and lyrical content, it is very much a blues. Oz fell
in love with the way Anuschka dove into the story of the song and
encouraged her to record it as one of the centerpieces for his film.
so it went, Anuschka would record the song and video in a one shot
session at Base Bin Studios in Montreal, Canada. She was backed by
familiars, Kate Wyatt on piano and Adrian Vedady on upright bass, both
whom not only played on her EP “Jazz for Sale” but also in her 2017 Jazz
In Bloom Concert. Jim Hillman on drums rounds out the trio, helping to
beautifully lay the foundation of the track. Visually, Anuschka drew the
artwork for the single herself and had the image vectored and coloured
by Renee Regnier.
Black Coffee will be available to be purchased and streamed on Anuschka’s website at www.aaawright.com and on all major music services: iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play, Deezer, Pandora, Tidal and more!
