Abbey Lincoln - Natas (Playmate) [1973]

A chef's kiss to the use of double-tracking on this song about an imaginary friend. I am always there for a singular bold effect on otherwise acoustic music, and here it's implemented so perfectly that I want to hug somebody. Stylistically, this sits quite nicely next to a previous selection from Horace Silver & Salome Bey, and it would clearly behoove me to investigate that era of vocal jazz more closely, as the focus on spiritual self-care is an influence that I always appreciate.
