Just about every song on this CD is just wonderful and masterfully done. The quality of the recording, the instruments and the musicians is superior. It is very sultry without being languid or sluggish. Great rhythms are married to intriguing melodies to move you subtly and keep you from getting bored. Perfect music for a jazzy cocktail party, or a steamy night home with someone special. Highly recommended! ~ Vespucci "vespuch"
The entire album is a "latin jazz" must have - but there are two stand outs ~ "CORCOVADO", featuring Charlie Byrd and Ken Peplowski, this alone is worth the price of admission, two classic musicians with a never-to-be-forgotten duet...the other is ~ MANHA DE CARNAVAL ( SUNRISE ), over four minutes of pure esctasy from sultry style of Susannah McCorkle, what a great loss of this memorable interpreter of lyrics, who passed away this year in May, she will be sorely missed - she had the free-spirit of Ella!
Hats off to producers John Burk & Chris Dunn, mastered by George Horn and Concord Jazz, mixing the essential ingredient into every release, quality first and foremost - can always count on them to come up with great and unforgettable moods in jazz - a note to Concord, we need more of the same! ~ J. Lovins "Mr. Jim"
