I have been wanting to do a version of the traditional song 'Black is the Color' for many years with altered lyrics (see title). But, it wasn't until the other day that I found the final touch to make it work the way I wanted it to. I hope you enjoy it, in spite of the sadness of the message.

Vocals & Altered Lyrics: Carla J. Patterson

redmandala Listener Well crafted lyrics that could have been tricky. I especially appreciate the way that your voice changes in it's intensity..
(all beautifully legato)...
almost wave like - long stretched out waves of changing intensity between
crashing emotion and a sort of poignant
vocal drifting, and pausing.
Truly captivating!

Carla this is awesome. Simmering awesome. Who but you would come up with the skin & Dijinn rhyme. And we love you for that unique imagination. smiley Arabian nights come to mind... Genies and old lamps... Very creative.

This is truly mesmerizing, richly composed and performed. It sounds like you are in a 'smaller intimate' old theathre that has perfect acoustics. Love your voice, it always gives me chills, such power and control. Most excellent work my friend. Thanks for sharing this gem with us, masterful.

Just back for another listen... Mmmm mmm good, so yummy for the ears & senses. You have such control of your voice it is jaw dropping, makes you pause in wonderment. I love this, giving me a "Sycamore Trees" (song from Twin Peaks) kind of a feel from this. Hauntingly soulful, giving me the chilly willies. smiley Fantastic work Carla. Thanks for sharing with us.
