Carmen Sings Monk (First Editions pressing – with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 511026) Bluebird, 1988 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 38

Incredible work from Carmen – one of her last great albums! The set was recorded in 1988 – but it's got an "instant classic" feel that makes it one of the best vocal jazz albums of its generation. Carmen's working with a small group that includes Charlie Rouse, Larry Willis, George Mraz, and Clifford Jordan – singing vocal versions of Monk classics like "I Mean You", "Blue Monk", "Well You Needn't", "Ruby My Dear", and "Ugly Beauty" – most of which have lyrics written by Jon Hendricks! This CD makes the original album even better – and throws in some bonus alternate versions of tracks on the album! (Out of print.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia, 1962. Used
An overlooked gem from Carmen – one of her few albums for Columbia from the 60s, and a wonderfully swinging small group session that's got a much more relaxed feel than some of her earlier sets! The album's ostensibly a tribute to Billie Holiday – but it's taken in a way that's ... CD

RCA/Bluebird, Mid 50s. Used
One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode! As with other RCA dates of the time, the orchestra's handled by Lena's partner ... CD

Who the heck is this lady? We have no idea – but the set's got some very cool pop tunes with a mod 60s feel! The "bossa nova" in the title refers to Manuela's big hit "Schuld War Nur Dar Bossa Nova" – which is a German version of "Blame It On The Bossa ... CD

Nice one! We've always loved the swinging vocal harmonies of the Four Freshmen, but their best records have never been issued before on CD. Now, though, Collector's Choice have put out two of their best on one CD, and the set's got a whopping 24 cuts of groovy groovy harmony sounds that have ... CD

A very groovy set of tracks – and one that comes packaged with its own roulette wheel in the cover! The package goes for an all-Vegas style of vocal tracks – swinging and upbeat numbers that make you feel like you're in the set of the original Oceans Eleven, or following Fredo around ... CD

Pacific Jazz (UK), 1962. Used
A tremendous album from Annie Ross – a new recording of songs from the musical Gypsy, done in versions that are far superior to any that you may have previously heard! Backings are by Buddy Bregman, and Annie's cool and swinging vocals really works magic with tunes like "Some ... CD
