Jack Jones Sings

LP (Item 611515) Kapp, 1966 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 38

Jack Jones sings, and beautifully too – on the kind of mellow album that few male singers made so well in the 60s! The set's got a great mix of jazz sensibility and straighter vocal singing – backed by light strings from Ralph Carmichael, but also a bit of tinkling piano from Doug Talbert – in a mode that floats easily with Jones' tremendous vocals. There's a depth here that's really wonderful – a quality that re-ignites even familiar tunes, but which sounds especially great on a few of the album's lesser-known numbers. Tracks include "I Don't Care Much", "Somewhere There's Someone", "Love After Midnight", "Somewhere My Love", "The Shining Sea", "A Day In The Life Of A Fool", and "The Face I Love".

Voice That Is
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
At the time of this album, Johnny Hartman definitely was the voice that is – a singer with a new level of maturity for the 60s, and a voice that's far more masculine than the geeky look of the photo on the cover! Hartman's sound here is smooth and warm, but never in a too-commercial way ... LP, Vinyl record album
