Beth Hart jazzes up her sound on new single

Beth Hart has released a lyric video for her track Jazz Man exclusively with Blues.

It’s the opening track on the Los Angeles’ singer, songwriter and musician’s latest album Fire On The Floor, which came out in October 2016.

The record was produced by Oliver Leiber, who Hart says was instrumental in getting the right sound on the album.

She says: “Oliver rounded up some amazing musicians. Michael Landau and Waddy Wachtel are legends, so when I found out we had them, I just couldn’t believe it. If you don’t have great musicians, you’re not gonna have a very good record, are you?

“We recorded 16 songs in three days but then we spent a long time mixing. Oliver is a brutally hard-working person, but he’s also incredibly sensitive and that combination works so great.

“He’s strong and focused, but still so vulnerable, and his heart is wide open. I’m so proud of what he did on this record.”

Hart is currently on tour in support of Fire On The Floor. See a full list of her live dates below.
