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.

Very sweet, and very groovy work from Liz Damon's Orient Express – a fab Hawaiian combo with a really great sound! The group's music is sort of a mix of lounge jazz, bossa grooving, and the kind of sweet late 60s easy touches that were showing up in Brit sound library music. Liz handles ... CD

Cloud Line Blue
Meantime (Norway), 1978. New Copy
Incredible work from Scandinavian singer Karin Krog! Although Krog began her career as a straight jazz vocalist, she cut a number of records in the 70's that had her pushing into a cool territory that was a lot more progressive, and which had some great Euro-fusion touches – like the sorts ... CD
