JMG reader Gary points out this Jazz Times article about openly gay jazz artists, where I found mention of Dave Koz’ new cover of Burt Bacharach’s 1968 classic, This Guy’s In Love With You.
“I’ve refashioned that as a wedding song in support of gay marriage,” Koz says. “It’s an interesting way to re-listen to a classic. That’s one of the reasons why I choose to sing it as opposed to playing it. It was important that I sing because of what I was trying to get across. When people listen to it, I hope they listen to it in that framework.”
Koz’ single is below left and a rather lovely remix is on the right.
