My Kind Of Town is a set that's pulled from sessions recorded over a few years in the early 60s – under the direction of arrangers Glenn Osser, Don Costa, and Marty Paich – all of whom bring a slightly different twist to his music! The styles are a bit varied, but in a way that shows Jack's great command of many modes – and given that there's a three-year duration between the first recording and the last on the set, the record acts almost like a portrait of Jones' evolution during the time. Titles include "Yes I Can", "I'm All Smiles", "Time After Time", "King Of The Road", "Travellin On", "My Kind Of Town", and "Somewhere Along The Way". LP, Vinyl record album
Sheila Jordan & Arild Andersen —
Sheila ... LP Steeplechase (Denmark), 1977. Near Mint- ...
Out Of Stock
One of the hippest albums ever recorded by Sheila Jordan – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of her work! The album's a set of spare duets recorded in Oslo with bassist Arild Andersen – in a setting that recalls some of the initial experimental work she'd done with Roswell Rudd, but with an even more spacious sound overall – one that lets Jordan dominate the tunes strongly with an amazing command of rhythm and timing! The approach is never too self-indulgent, and Andersen's warm tones on bass round out the tunes with a subtle sense of soul. Tunes are a mix of old standards and a few hipper 70s numbers – and include "Song Of Joy", "The Saga Of Harrison Crabfeathers", "On Green Dolphin Street", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "The Lady", and "Better Than Anything".
