Singer/actor Lea DeLaria, who exploded out of comedy and surprised some people with her award-winning jazz stylings,
is doing an album called House of David with material she's already tried out in concert.
She'll be recording jazz versions of Bowie standards like "Suffragette City," "Boys Keep Swinging," "Life on Mars,"
and "Jean Genie" (which, in her hands, has an acid jazz feel to it).
She wants to duet with Bowie himself on "Space Oddity."
Saying ... I can't think of anything that would send me to Mars more quickly.
It would be--to coin a phrase--Hunky Dory.
Lea's people have been in touch with David's people and she hopes the whole thing will happen, the faster the better.
Not sure if its a good idea, maybe Bowie should keep out of this project and leave Space Oddity the way it is.
