1619 Broadway – The Brill Building Project

Out Of Stock


5.00 38

Kurt Elling turns his talents towards the music of the Brill Building – completely transforming a host of pop and soul classics in the process! The songs are familiar, but the music's got all the careful balance of some of Elling's best records in recent years – definitely jazz all the way through, with sparkling arrangements that really work beautifully with Kurt's unique vocals – in ways that push these tunes way past their roots, and show how strongly Elling can bring new feelings out of a song – even with numbers that are much more iconic than his usual fare. Titles include "So Far Away", "Shoppin For Clothes", "A House Is Not A Home", "Pleasant Valley Sunday", "On Broadway", "Come Fly With Me", and "You Send Me".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of the best albums we've heard in years from trumpeter Dave Douglas – a really in the pocket session that's filled with rhythmic intensity, and some of the boldest music we've heard from Dave in years! There's plenty of edges to the set – especially the trumpet of Douglas and tenor ... CD

Seeco, Early 60s. New Copy
The young Joe Cuba's coming on plenty strong here – working with a stripped-down sextet that was his answer to the larger, stuffier Latin groups of the previous generation! Cuba's combo has plenty of fire right from the start – and a sublime mix of jazz and percussion that's a key link ... CD
