$1,000 Payout: Female Jazz Needed Quickly for Big Hollywood Film

TAXI really, really wants to nail this Feature Film placement. It’s a cool film with big stars, and they’re having a hard time finding the right song. Somebody reading this has to have what this Music Supervisor needs!
LIGHT, ROMANTIC JAZZ SONGS with Female Vocals are U-R-G-E-N-T-L-Y needed for a NON-Exclusive Placement by the Music Supervisor of a Big Budget, Hollywood Feature Film. She’s eagerly searching for Down-Tempo Songs that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the references below. Please give them a listen to get an idea of the overall vibe this Music Supervisor is looking so hard to find:
“Once Upon A Summertime” by Blossom Dearie:

"I'm In The Mood For Love" by Julie London:

"You Started Something" by Rosemary Clooney: 
Quoting the source: “This is a really tight deadline, and we’re fairly desperate to find something with a romantic vibe and a really great vocal performance.” 
We know the Rosemary Clooney example has a larger compliment of instrumentation, but ideally, they want original songs done with a small ensemble and authentic light Jazz instrumentation. They’re NOT looking for a rip off, copy, or sound-a-like of the referenced songs, but they do need something could be found on the same romantic playlist! Give them something light and dreamy with an intimate, tender, and romantic delivery on the Female Vocal.
Songs that feature piano or guitar (or both) are okay for this pitch, but we think piano pieces will have a slight edge!
Lyric themes can vary, but if you have something that mentions “summer” or “summertime,” that might put a big smile of this Music Supervisor’s face. Other than mentions of summer-related ideas, you’d be wise to keep your lyrics universal, avoiding references to specific names, places, dates, times, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced songs in any way shape or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempotone, and overall texture. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).
The estimated license fee for this is $1000, depending on the ultimate use. This is a Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music Supervisor pitch, so you’ll keep 100% of the sync fee and your Master and Publishing rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control the Master Recording and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. All songs will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. Please submit 1-3 songs no later than NOON (PDT), WEDNESDAY, June 17th, 2015. TAXI #U150617JZ
