2 gems from overlooked singer Pat Bowie – both of them great! First up is Out Of Sight – proof that Pat's got a heck of a great sound – one that's lean, groovy, and very well suited for the 60s-styled title of the album! Pat's a jazz singer on one side, but also has an edge to her tone – at a level that's a bit like Lorez Alexandria during some of her jazz outings of the same time – a very groovy mode that's quite different than most other standard vocals, with a depth of feeling that's totally great! Backings are by a small combo with Seldon Powell on tenor and flute, Kenny
Burrell on guitar, and Ray Bryant on piano – and the album's got some groovy tracks like "Joey Joey Joey", "Get Out Of Town", "Don Cha Go Away Mad", "Moon & Sand", "The Music That Makes Me Dance", and "The Sounds Of The Night". Feelin Good is fantastic work from singer Pat Bowie – and a session that also features some key solos from Charles McPherson as well! McPherson's alto isn't always heard on albums with vocals, but it does a great job here with Pat – sliding in nicely at just the right point, and giving the tunes a nice sort of edge underneath the lyrics. The rest of the group is great too – with Tommy Flanagan on piano, All Hall on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all accompanying Bowie with a relaxed, easygoing feel that's very much like catching the set in a hip small club. Titles include "Wonder Why", "Summertime", "Feeling Good", "Since I Fell For You", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "Summertime", "Lonesome Road", and "You Don't Know What Love Is".
