Sweet, sexy and seductive... this is a mouth watering Jazz standard performed in traditional, elegant Jazz style. Usually a slow tempo, it has been shifted up a gear, and fired along with a shuffle groove, and rippin' acoustic bass solo. Written for the legendary Lady Day, Lover Man is a passionate plea - "Lover Man, O Where Can you Be?" Featuring Helen Coleman (vocals) Daniel Philippe (Piano) AJ Hall (Bass) Nathan Goldman (drums). Recorded at Ghostgum Studio, Brisbane.


Lover Man
I don't know why but I'm feeling so sad
I long to try something I never had
Never had no kissin'
Oh, what I've been missin'
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

The night is cold and I'm so alone
I'd give my soul just to call you my own
Got a moon above me
But no one to love me
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

I've heard it said
That the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream
I go to bed with a prayer
That you'll make love to me
Strange as it seems

Someday we'll meet
And you'll dry all my tears
Then whisper sweet
Little things in my ear
Hugging and a-kissing
Oh, what I've been missing
Lover man, oh, where can you be?
