One of the grooviest sets ever recorded by Swedish singer Monica Zetterlund – a cool late 60s album that has some really wonderful songs! At some level, Monica's still very firmly in jazz vocal territory – but she's also letting in strands of hipper 60s pop work, in a mode that's similar to some of Blossom Dearie's best work from the same period. Not surprisingly, the album's got a great version of Dearie's classic "Sweet Georgie Fame", as well as Swedish readings of Carla Bley's "Ida Lupino", Steve Kuhn's "Memory", and the tracks "A Man & A Woman", "Bachianas Brasileiras", "Alfie", and "Quietly There".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

CBS/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy

Reprise (Japan), 1961. New Copy
Maybe the grooviest album cut by singer Mavis Rivers – thanks to some wonderful backings from west coast jazzman Marty Paich! Paich brings a cool compressed swing to the set – a groove that's very similar to his sublime late 50s work with Mel Torme, which is a great choice for Mavis ... CD
