Being that she is the daughter of the late, great New York Jazz guitarist Al Cappi, it comes as no surprise that his chosen genre, as well as gentle threads of funk, soul and blues, run right through Louise Cappi’s music. Keep That Dream Alive is a gorgeous and seductive song, one with blues grooves, jazz ornateness, funky infectiousness and banks of soulful harmony vocals.
But even with all of that musical goodness being spread around it is Louise’s seductive and smokey, late-night vocals that stand proud of the song. That and a gorgeous jazz-blues guitar break that runs through the second half of this tasteful and tremendous offering.
Cool is a word that gets bandied about too much these days, but Keep That Dream Alive is a cool song. A very cool song indeed.
