Vocalist and pianist Norah Jones developed a unique blend of jazz and traditional vocal pop, with hints of bluesy country and contemporary folk, due in large part to her unique upbringing. The daughter of Ravi Shankar, Jones grew up in Texas with her mother. While she always found the music of Billie Holiday and Bill Evans both intriguing and comforting, she didn’t really explore jazz until attending Dallas’ Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.Read More

Norah Jones took liberty with her blockbuster success to set out on a musical walkabout, spending a good portion of the decade following 2004’s Feels Like Home experimenting, either on her own albums or on a variety of collaborations. Day Breaks, released four years after the atmospheric adult alternative pop of the Danger Mouse-produced Little Broken Hearts, finds Jones returning home to an extent:Read More

Perry Como rocks! He would have been aghast at the notion, but in the mid-to-late 1950s, he recorded a slew of singles that weren’t really rock ‘n’ roll, but definitely rocked. These records are now heralded as the era’s classics: Kewpie Doll, Round And Round, Ko Ko Mo, Tina Marie, Hot Diggity, Catch A Falling Star, Magic Moments, Juke Box Baby, Glendora, Dancin’, and Just Born To Be Your Baby. Those songs featured the era’s top songwriters like Burt Bacharach, Leiber & Stoller, and Luther Dixon.Read More

The Beautiful voice of Vera Lynn and twenty songs cut at the begging of Worl War Two including the title track and such other nostalgic classics as ‘A nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square’ and ‘The White Cliffs Of Dover’. As a symbol of the spirit of Britain during our darkest hour, Vera is rightly held in enormous affection and steem, but these tracks also reveal her to be a superb singer and highly enjoyable entertainer.Read More

Reissuing the identical material compiled elsewhere several times (most notably on Columbia’s The Complete Doris Day With Les Brown), Jazz Factory won’t win any points for originality, but the material itself is golden. Day’s recordings with Les Brown blazed at such a high candle power that even an energetic combo like the Andrews Sisters could hardly compare (no less with their three voices to her one).Read More

Music fans born after 1960 are less likely to be aware that Nat King Cole began his career as an influential jazz pianist, so much so that the great Art Tatum and the up-and-coming Oscar Peterson formed trios similar to Cole’s. What this comprehensive limited-edition boxed set does is put all of Cole’s jazz trio recordings, including later groups that added a conga player, selected tracks from sessions that sometimes border on easy listening, and nearly the complete contentsRead More
