It’s a brave musician who dares to take a masterwork and reinterpret it. It’s a long-standing tradition, of course, particularly in the world of jazz, but it takes a stout heart and loads of talent to step up to the plate and throw one’s fate to the wind when the source is INXS.
And yet that’s exactly what CAM GILES has done, and knocked it right out of the ballpark. This album is a startling, sexy reinvention of the music of INXS. It’s been translated into the language of jazz and the translation is spellbinding.
