Happy Saturday, my fellow loungers! I hope the sun is shining in your little corner of the world.
Before I continue my yard renovation today, I awoke early to bring you The Top Ten on it's regular day.
Shoutout to Igor Gerzina, my Croatian Smooth Jazz friend, and the releases of the video for his new single, Eastern Magic. Scroll down below this article to watch and listen. It will be available at amazon.com and other digital retailers on June 1.
For a second week, Lapsley's Cliff remains atop the chart. Her haunting chilled sound has resonated with fans, as well as those of us here at the station. Chris Standring's Smooth Jazz guitar moves into number two, and Mode & Light round out the top three.
Phigroa & ArnoB take a slight slip, as the votes continue to keep them in the top five. Mr. Dylan scoots up to number five.
Out of all the Bubbling Under tracks, SAMBOX has made the biggest impact this week. The Smoking Mix of the title track to his new release, Guest Star, leapfrogged over the others to take it's place at number ten.
Speaking of Bubbling Under, the list is becoming a lttle crowded as two more tracks get added. Station fave, Benjamin Biolay, released his new album last week. Entitled Palermo Hollywood, you will have heard Le Débandade over the station airwaves the last few days. He's quickly becoming the new Gainsbourg, in my humble estimation.
Big thanks to The Warheads for Blue Venus. Their alt-jazz sound has a modern twist to those smoky nightclub sounds of the past.
Of course, your support of these artists is greatly appreciated. Thanks for listening, and don't forget to vote for your favourite Top Ten song at www.thisislounge.com.
