Great work from the trio of singer Francoise-Franca Cuomo – a singer with a great blend of experimental modes and European inflections – easily one of the freshest jazz vocalists we've heard in years! The instrumentation here is very spare – just bass and piano – both played with evocative shifts in tone and timing, to match Cuomo's inventive style of singing – a blend that, all together, reminds us somewhat of the more experimental spare Sheila Jordan sessions from years back – although there's also some spoken passages here in French, which definitely give the record a different feeling, and an influence from blues that's bubbling underneath. Music includes a fair bit of songs from rootsy sources, turned towards more offbeat phrasing – and titles include "Alabama Blues", "Le Blues", "Viens Baby", "No Images", "Dealer/Harlem", "Speech", "Vietnam Blues", and "Black Brown & White".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Trombone Jazz Samba/Samba Para Dos
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy
Pure genius throughout – two great albums on a single CD! Trombone Jazz Samba is an overlooked gem from Bob Brookmeyer – and a set that fits in strongly with the other Verve Records bossa nova albums of the 60s! Bob's the center star on valve trombone, but the record's awash in work ... CD
