As you may have been able to tell, I have a penchant for certain types of music. Indie pop, rock, and folk are basically all I ever listen to, thus all I ever write about. Today, however, is going to be different. Variety is the spice of life, after all, eh? Today, I feature some quality jazz music. Today is about Mizan and her song "No Fool." It's a very simple piece, with only a piano and her strong voice, and it packs a punch of raw emotion and soul. I'm not an expert in this genre at all, but I would say that this is one of my favorite pieces of bluesy jazz from this year. Maybe even this decade.
You can watch Mizan's very simple video for No Fool, shot on 16 mm film, here:
