performed by Cassandra Wilson, 1955-, Terri Lyne Carrington, 1965-, Mulgrew Miller, 1955- and Lonnie Plaxico, 1960- (Verve Records, 1988), 51 mins
On 1988's Blue Skies, Cassandra Wilson took her first step away from the home she had built with Steve Coleman's M-Base organization. She'd done standards before, all the way back to 1985's Songbook. There are no M-Base players on this JMT set. She fronts a very conventional trio comprised of pianist Mulgrew Mille...

Nature Boy: The Standards Album
See details
performed by Aaron Neville (Verve Records, 2003), 49 mins
Aaron Neville's voice exists in that rarefied air occupied by only the most lyrical musicians, including Paul Desmond's alto saxophone and Miles Davis' muted trumpet. Sweet and throaty, reedy and always crying, it's capable of bewitching anyone within hailing distance -- including, in some cases, the singer himsel...

The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier

performed by Terry Callier, 1945-2012, Terbour Attenborough and John Tweedle (Prestige, 2003), 55 mins, 11 page(s)
The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier was not released until 1968, about three years after the project was originally completed; while the long delay almost certainly crippled the momentum of Callier's fledgling career, the impact on the music itself was at most minimal -- while not the singer's best album, it's his...

These Foolish Things

conducted by Riley Hampton and Al Poskonka; performed by Etta James, 1938-2012 (Interscope, 1995), 49 mins
James has long been a masterful blues balladeer -- a talent spotlighted throughout the course of this 14-song collection. Some tracks are cushioned by string-enriched arrangements, others -- notably 1965's passionate "Only Time Will Tell" -- are melodic Chicago soul. Four tracks are previously unreleased, includin...

My Kinda Swing

performed by Ernestine Anderson, 1928-, Yusef Lateef, 1920-2013, Tate Houston, 1924-1974, Clark Terry, 1920-2015, Ernie Royal and Frank Rehak, 1926-1987 (Verve Records, 2002), 33 mins
Ernestine Anderson was 32 years old at the time of this 1960 session, not long before her career inexplicably fell into the doldrums. This album finds her in great form, supported by a cast of musicians including Clark Terry, Hank Jones, Yusef Lateef, Ernie Royal, Frank Rehak, and Kenny Burrell, with terrific arra...
