Louise Cappi was born into a musical life. The internationally acclaimed New Orleans-based singer/songwriter, recording artist and entertainer is the daughter of the late great New York jazz guitarist, Al Cappi. A staple of her hometown’s legendary music scene, Louise and her band pack the house on Friday and Saturday nights at her weekly residency at the city’s Mahogany Jazz Hall. Her music has brought her all over the world, including regular appearances on prestigious New York City stages.
The singer made her solo recording debut in 2017 with the album “Melange.” That record won her accolades and rave reviews globally and spawned a hit in the form of her upbeat Jazz cover of the Geroge Gershwin ‘Porgy and Bess’ classic “Summertime.” Louise is back with a brand new track for 2021. The song’s simple, uplifting message is just what the doctor ordered for these troubled times.
“Hope” is the latest single from Louise Cappi, released worldwide to all major streaming services on July 16, 2021. The smooth, laid-back funk of the bass introduces the track. The singer then enters the mix with a bluesy R&B tone that brings to mind some of Bonnie Raitt’s slower, more soulful stuff. Eventually drums, piano and guitar join in to complete the Jazz ensemble. Cappi delivers an inspirational meditation on the nature and definition of hope. A troupe of backing soul singers and a really slick Jazz guitar solo in the bridge round-out the vibe.
