Amy Winehouse's Dad Releases Debut Jazz Album "Rush of Love"

Mitch Winehouse - Rush of Love"Mitch Winehouse, former cab driver and father to one of the UK's biggest music exports is about to prove the critics wrong with the release of his debut album Rush Of Love which is available now. At the age of 60, Mitch is turning a life-long ambition into reality, showcasing his in-depth knowledge and sheer passion for jazz and swing music with this 11-track debut featuring a host of rarely uncovered classics as well as four brand new tracks.

"We love singing in our family" Mitch explains, "I was always singing at home. But this is a dream come true and musically, it's a great album." Despite his own undeniable music talent, Mitch is also realistic about the assumptions that will be made about his newfound career choice: "If Amy wasn't my daughter I wouldn't be given this opportunity. I'm not stupid, I know that. But if I couldn't sing I wouldn't have been given the opportunity either."
