What better way to enjoy the middle of a stressful week than to share the sounds of north central Ohio with a post in a series we began four years ago called Mid-Week Mid-Ohio Music?

Today’s edition brings another example of the wide range of musical talents that have made or now make their home in this part of the state. This week, we’re heading to downtown Mansfield and an intimate setting to listen to some mellow sounds.

This week, we feature the stylings of two members of the local group S’yVelt, a favorite of many Mansfield area audiences.

Founded in 2012, the band plays frequently at many venues, including The Brickyard, the Main Library, and, in the case of the music we are sharing today, at City News on North Main Street.

Members of S’yVelt have included Jeffrey Boyd on trumpet and vocals; Tarkington Johnson on drums, percussion, and keyboard; Jacob Campbell on piano and keyboard; Brian Bumpus on guitar; Steven Fernandez on bass; Tyrone Smith on percussion and drums; and Thomas Blair on flute, tenor, baritone sax, and clarinet.

Here, Jacob Campbell on piano and Jeffrey Boyd on trumpet play “Embraceable You,” a 1920s-era jazz classic by George and Ira Gershwin. It has since been covered by a “who’s who” of recording artists, including Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Rod Stewart, and many more.
