Jazz In Paris – Vaughan & Violins

CD (Item 62763) Universal (France), 1958 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.80 38

A really rich album by Sarah Vaughan – recorded in Paris in 1958, with orchestrations by Quincy Jones – and large group backing that includes some great tenor work by Zoot Sims! The session's one of Vaughan's most cohesive albums of the period, and although it's got "violins" in the title, it's not too drippy or sleepy, thanks to Quincy – who keeps the whole thing moving along nicely, with just the right amount of swing and soul to work perfectly with Vaughan's vocals! Titles include "Live For Love", "Please Be Kind", "I'll Close My Eyes", "That's All", "Day By Day", "The Thrill Is Gone", and "Love Me".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of the greatest albums ever cut by Swedish vocalist Monica Zetterlund – a landmark album that has her singing with the Bill Evans Trio! The album was recorded in 1964, with a spare sound that's quite different from most of Monica's other work. As usual, her vocals are wonderfully cool ... CD

Smilin' Memories
EMI/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A sunny 70s set from Erik Tagg – a record that's halfway between blue-eyed soul and the warmer territory of singers like Kenny Rankin or Michael Franks! Like both of those artists, Erik Tagg's certainly got something of an ear for jazz, and chooses some great elements in the backdrops for ... CD

Joey Heatherton Album
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's ... CD

Lea In Love
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1957. New Copy
A really dark little album of vocal jazz from 50s singer Barbara Lea – recorded here with small combo backing, and a strange sound that's a fair bit different than most other efforts of this type from the time! At one level, there's definitely a leaner 50s vocal jazz approach going on – ... CD

Cambria/BBE (UK), 1983. New Copy
Very hip vocal work from singer Janet Lawson – an under-discovered vocalist with a very groovy sound! Janet's got a soaring, breezy feel that's a bit like some of the best Bay Area or European work from a few years before – inflected with some Brazilian influences, but also delivered ... CD

Blue Note/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
Sweet soul from Carmen McRae – a great 70s album for Blue Note, and one that has the classic singer moving into some very groovy material! The feel here is much more soul than jazz – at least the jazz of the torchy style from Carmen's roots – but as you'd guess from McRae, the ... CD

I Am Music
Blue Note/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy
Carmen McRae really opens up on this sweet 70s set for Blue Note – expanding past the traditional jazz of her roots, and even some of the groovier work of her Atlantic years – into a sweeping, contemporary sound that's all adult, all the way! The vibe is great – in the same ... CD
