Half Notes: Jacintha – Jacintha Goes To Hollywood (2008)

by Mark Saleski

Singaporean singer Jacintha (full name Jacintha Abisheganaden) takes on the songbook of the Hollywood of my youth: “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head,” “Que Sera Sera,” “California Dreaming,” “Windmills Of Your Mind.” It’s funny, I hated these songs back in the day. Now? The concertina/acoustic guitar introduction to “Que Sera Sera” makes me melt. Weird. Anyhow, Jacintha’s very intimate presentation is a real winner.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
