Casey in the studio with Haley?

Background info on the people mentioned, compiled by figure8:

Anthony Wilson (jazz; guitarist, composer, arranger) http://www.anthonywilsonmusic.com/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Wilson_(musician) works with Diana Krall

Roy McCurdy (jazz drummer) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_McCurdy

Gary Foster (jazz; sax, woodwinds) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Foster_(musician)

Gabe Noel (jazz; double bass) http://www.myspace.com/gabenoel

Larry Goldings (jazz; keyboards, producer/arranger) http://www.larrygoldings.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Goldings

Based on this other tweet he made, there is speculation Haley and Casey might be working on the single "Baby It's Cold Outside" for the Christmas season:

i'm playing guitar on a session of the song "baby it's cold outside" tomorrow. did this once with willie nelson &... http://fb.me/199QAMR1l

I think Casey would give the tune more of a jazz feel than Willie, who seems like he's just reading the words:



Ray Charles and Dionne Warwick, 1987: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmWvR-kdnCo

YouTube comment: "This song DESERVES to be sung like this. Not tripping over itself trying be cute going too fast. Slow... sexy... seductive... Let the male in the song seduce you AND the woman... Great singers have butchered this sing in comparison. Just AWESOME"

Ann Margret & Al Hirt. I don't see them recording it this way in the modern day, but I agree with the comment: "In most (or all) of the other versions the women keep singing more fiercely and you can hardly hear the man, because somehow they think that's what makes them sexy... its like they aren't even talking to each other, just fighting for predominance."

The GLEE gay version, which aired last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTnwv2NN-DI

Other versions have been recorded by:

Michael Bublé with Anne Murray / Harry Connick Jr & Lee Ann Womack / Bing Crosby & Doris Day/ Dean Martin and ??? / Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart / Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey / Vanessa Williams and Bobby Caldwell /Lady Antebellum

"Baby it's Cold Outside" to be released 11/21.
90-second preview available now


Listen now, the preview is only available for 24 hours at link below.

EW:
Quote:Haley and Casey didn’t want to let a good thing go, so they reunited to record the smooth Christmas classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” which will be available for download on November 21.

You’ll have to wait until that day to hear the full track, but here on the Music Mix, we’ve got an exclusive 90-second preview of the seasonal anthem, which Abrams says “reminds you of the fireplace.” He lauds the track for being a “straight up a jazz standard” with “no four-on-the-floor bass drum.”

For the next 24 hours, give the sweetly sung song a listen below. After that, it’s gone!

Haley sounds fantastic. I agree with the comments that Casey's voice should have been deeper on this tune.

What they're singing:

I really can’t stay (Baby, it’s cold outside)
I’ve got to go ‘way (Baby, it’s cold outside)
The evening has been (I’ve been hopin’ that you’d drop in)
So very nice (I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice)

My mother will start to worry (Hey beautiful, what’s your hurry)
My father will be pacing the floor (Listen to that fireplace roar)
So really, I’d better scurry (Beautiful, please don’t hurry)
Well, maybe just a half a drink more (Put some music on while I pour)

The neighbors might think (Baby, it’s bad out there)
Say, what’s in this drink (No cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how (Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell)

I oughtta say no, no, no sir (You mind if I move in closer)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (And what’s the sense in hurting my pride)
I really can’t stay (Oh baby, don’t hold out)
Oh, but it’s cold outside

Casey's part is growing on me, but it's still too dang high when he talks about taking her hat -- the distinction between their voices is lost. I think the pacing is a little fast.

One of the early comments on EW says she sung BICO with her father on the Reinhart Christmas album. That seems...awkward.

On Twitter, her cousin Jenna said, "You should hear her sing Noel.. So beautiful." I'd like to hear that.

I agree -- I wish that it was in a different key so that Casey was a bit lower.

"wish that it was in a different key"

Idol_Rox77 on IF lowered the key & slowed the tempo down:

Spontaneity seams to work better for both than something scripted . Mayfield vid tells it all.I like her fly by the seat of you pants attitude.

Haley loves spontaneity. Although she conceded in her Idoloonies interview it made sense in a competition where the songs are oftened shortened (AI) to have a road map of where you wanted to go.

Although I still wish that they were singing this in a different key or that Casey would have dropped his part an octave (it's true that he doesn't have a huge range, but he should have at least an octave and a half), it's such fun watching Haley and Casey perform together.

Between their spontaneity and their mutual respect/admiration of the other's musical ability and the music they're singing, it's a pleasure, a joy to see them perform together.
