Meet Andreas Farmakalidis –

L-O-V-E” is a Jazz song written by Bert Kaempfert and Milt Gabler for American singer/pianist Nat King Cole’s 1965 album L-O-V-E.

I recently discovered that Joss Stone covered this well-known tune in 2007 for the sound track of the short film Coco Mademoiselle, which was made as an advertising campaign for Chanel “coco mademoisel” fragrance.

Joss Stone and Raphael Saadig, gave a new, more pop, sound to this classic tune. Saadigs bass line acts as the centerpiece of the song. This strong, “Motown like” bass line drives the tune and support Joss Stones vocals perfectly.

Enjoy!
