about

Trance Thompson transports us through this genre bending timewarp with this elegant arrangement of "When Doves Cry" by the one and only Prince.
The classic Prince song re-envisioned as a sultry downtempo number in a smoky club in 1950s Havana.
Soaring vocals/horns are featured by Jazz Mafia's finest players, all recorded in one room in studio.

lyrics

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling...can you picture this?
Dream if you can
A courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you
How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like when doves cry.
Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you
Even doves have pride
How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold (world so cold)
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like when doves cry
