I Had a Feelin'
Natasha Miller discovered a gold mine. Actually, the gold mine discovered her. Miller was giving an interview on KCSM Jazz 91 in the Bay Area promoting one of her many concerts. Little did she know that listening that day was songwriter Bobby Sharp. Known for his hit song Unchain My Heart, made famous in 1961 and a Top Ten Hit by Ray Charles, Sharp was blown away by Natasha's voice. After hearing her on the radio, he figured Natasha would appreciate his songs, so he sent them to her. When she opened the package of his songs, including never-before-heard gems, she knew she had discovered a long lost treasure of the most beautiful jazz ballads - lyrically masterful, melodically exquisite, and harmonically alluring. I Had a Feelin, Miller's third album, is a tribute to the songbook of Bobby Sharp. Natasha glows on the album recorded with Mr. Sharp standing at her side. Produced by Miller, along with her bassist/recording engineer Jon Evans (who tours with Tori Amos), the album is a timeless document of songs and music and solidifies the interpretive powers of Miller and the songwriting legend of Sharp.
