Ben Sidran — I Lead A Life ... CD 13.99

Wonderful early work from Ben Sidran! The album's got a hip jazzy vocal style – similar to some of the best late 60s work by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg, but also with New Orleans touches – as in the work of Mose Allison or Dr John! Sidran brings in a smoother, groovier feel than those artists, though – and really helps out his vocals with some great work on electric piano too! The instrumentation's got a tripped-out California feel – often quite open-ended, and really rumbling around for different influences from jazz, funk, and soul – almost like some of Shuggie Otis' best work of the time, or like some of Ben's contemporaries on the Blue Thumb label. Titles include the great instrumental "Lust" – plus "Eliyahu", "When A Woman Says She's Ready", "Talking About Money", "I Lead A Life", "Slippery Hip", and "Chances Are". (Cover has a light stain on one corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of the great records made by the cool French jazzy vocal group that included Ward Swingle and Christine LeGrand, and which did stuff that was much more straightforwardly jazzy than the semi-classical work of the Swingle Singers.
