Martha In Person (Japanese paper sleeve edition)

CD (Item 603782) Trio/Clinck (Japan), Late 70s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.70 38

A warm and wonderful live date from vocalist Martha Miyake – one of the most important Japanese jazz singers of the 70s – and an artist with a great command for phrasing in English! Backings here are by a tight piano trio – and Miyake's got this mellow-toned, open-ended style that's not unlike Anita O'Day or Chris Conner around the same time – some slight world-weary traces that really deepen the vocals, and make even familiar tunes feel a bit more personal than you might expect. The backings really help underscore this feeling – and titles include "The Things I Didn't Do", "That's All", "Almost Like Being In Love", "But Not For Me", "Who Can I Turn To", and "Supper Time". (Includes a nice replica of the original album booklet, too!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
