This improvisation by Aural Elixir showcases the influences of Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald & Joni Mitchell on singer Jesse Maclaine. Intended as a warm up piece for a half day studio jam, "You've Changed" has both a free and controlled feel. Stellar band featuring Lynn Drury, Alex McMurray, Cassandra Falconer & Johnny Vidacovich meld seamlessly with Jesse's vocals and piano into this wonderful instant opus. Recorded live in September 2012 by engineer Tim Stambaugh at Word Of Mouth Studios, New Orleans.
You used to be my perfect cup of tea. Now you're black coffee.
You used to be a peach. Now I'm making lemonade.
