    Does anyone remeber this band.They had a female vocalist with a sultry voice and played slow jazz and psychedelic rock.Being as talented as she was I'm wondering if anyone knows what happened of her.They only released 3 discs and disaapeared.

    Jennifer Charles (the singer for Elysian Fields) is now in a group called Lovage with Mike Patton... She has also appeared on a few songs by various ninja tune artists...

    it's a great album... not really funky... more a hip-hop/trip-hop kinda vibe... it was produced by Dan "the automator" Nakimura and Kid Koala... She sings on almost every song... about 50/50 with Patton... Check it out... it rarely leaves my cd changer...

    The funny thing is while searching for that disc I finally found a used copy of Elysian Fields mcd which is a bitch to find.I think they only have a limited # of copies.The picture on front of Jennifer and the lettering's really cool.Totally retro!
