NBC morning new's Ann Currie, leaves the rest of the news bunnys in the dust, when it comes to vocals ....
Although NBC's Katie Couric clearly wins hands down when it comes to women's footware.
Kit Hoover of Cold Pizza (sports) and Kelly from "Regis" run close seconds when it comes to women's footware. Where is Kathy Lee Gifford now.
I'm sorry, I was distracted, what was your the question (;-)
Kehut, I have to agree that the new Jane Monheit CD is very good. I have a couple of her discs now. BUT sexy is another issue!?!
Nobody really comes to mind, but I have really gotten to prefer females vocals in the last couple of years.
I will be following this thread to find out who others think sound sexy. I'm not sure what the contributing factors to sexy vocals are though.
Going back a few years - Julie London - deep throaty voice - not bad to look at either. Fine if you like old pop music. Personally I like a little more upbeat jazz - of the newer singers I really like Rene Marie. Sexy, I don't know, but she has a great voice and style. If interested try Live at Jazz Standard on Maxjazz.
I agree about Dietrich. Laura Nyro was pretty hot. But the sexiest number I ever heard was by--wait for it--Nana Mouskouri, on "Nana Mouskouri in New York," available today on Mercury CD and on vinyl reissue. The first track, No Moon at All, is quite warm, but the fifth, Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, will have you remembering all the times your teenage girlfriend wouldn't let you go below the chest.
As a close second, try 'C'est extra' on Renée Claude's collection of songs by Léo Ferré, "On a marché sur l'amour". You gotta know French for it...
Mejames....Ann Currie does have a very sexy/sultry voice, she is a news reader on NBC morning news. I'm not sure of her singing talents.
Bigjoe...the only thing sexier than a set of 300b's glowing brightly is a leggy woman in 4 inch open toed pumps going over to shut the lights off. I hope that clarifies it for YA
I personally find female vocalist who try to sound sexy quite annoying. In many cases it's just a cover-up for a lack of talent. If you guys only knew what goes into the engineering process of recording, overdubbing, blending, pitch allignment,etc.; your queen might come off her pedestal in a hurry.
Sexiest vocals is Christina Amphlett of "DIVINYLS", self-titled CD with the song "I Touch Myself". Her phrasing and breathing techniques make her sound as if she's having multiple orgasms throughout the whole album!
Best female vocalist is Annie Haslam of "RENAISSANCE".
I also think that Rachel Sweet has a pretty sexy voice as well!
Fatparrot, I forgot about Rachel Sweet. I actually saw her in concert 1970 something. It was great to see guys pushing to the front of the stage. She was wearing a little white peasant top (popular at that time), Wow, what a visual memory. Thanks, Fatparrot!
I'm on my way to listen to her first two LP's.
Gosh! I've fallen in love so many times? Here are three voices I've been smitten by...
1. Babel Gilberto
2. Morgana King
3. Carmen Lundy singing:All Day, All Night
I need your body to feel my body,
I want your body close to mine,
A little lovin'
Don't hurt nobody
I want your body next to mine.
All day, all night,
All day, all night,
Make love all day,
Make love all night...
