#30 Kirsty McGee – Sandman

Kirsty McGee’s sultry ‘Sandman’ dates back to 2008 and its appearance on The Kansas Sessions, but its getting a new lease of life and a new release to mark its appearance in Danny Boyle’s new film Trance. But the truth is it could just as easily be 50 years old as five, perhaps more, so evocative is it of a lost era of jazz. This belongs in some old smokey bar long since closed down for health and safety reasons, where you can imagine McGee backed by some wizened old players who’ve jammed with more artists than you ever knew existed. We’ve no idea what the theme of Trance is, but this had us in one.
