Vocalist Valerie Joyce has been performing as a musician on the Seattle music scene since 1994. Born in Japan to an American father and Japanese mother, she was exposed to classical music through her mother’s piano playing and extensive record collection. After college, she moved to Seattle where she regularly appears with a variety of jazz ensembles. ‘The Look of Love’ is Valerie Joyce’s much-anticipated follow-up to her Chesky debut, featuring elegantly chic original arrangements of classic pieces from Burt Bacharach & Hal David’s extensive catalogue.

Although it would have been interesting to hear Nat King Cole play some piano and perhaps accompany a vocal by George Shearing instead of exclusively the other way around, this session was a big success. Cole is in prime form on such tunes as “September Song,” “Pick Yourself Up,” and “Serenata.” Shearing’s accompaniment is tasteful and lightly swinging, and the string arrangements help to accentuate the romantic moods.

The Trail of Dreams suite, composed by the country’s most famous jazz musician, was commissioned to commemorate the trail. Oscar Peterson has explored nationalistic themes before, and, like his 1964 Canadiana suite, this one is inspired by the changing landscape and shifting cultures encountered in crossing so vast a country, from the Celtic reel of “Dancetron” to a minuet. Michel LeGrand provides string arrangements for Peterson’s themes, expanding and supporting the work of Peterson’s quartet: guitarist Ulf Wakenius, bassist Niels Henning-Orsted Pedersen, and drummer Martin Drew.

Popular songs are often associated with the vocalists that made them famous but few artists actually have the distinction of having a “theme” song along the lines of Bob Hope with “Thanks for the Memories.” Even fewer can claim to have two theme songs attached to them and Andy Williams is one of those fortunate stars. After “Moon River” became forever linked to Williams, he recorded a holiday song for his first Christmas album that gave him a yuletide hit and theme song.

Although Rosemary Clooney had a major part in the famous film White Christmas back in 1954, this was her first full Christmas album and it was a big seller when it was released late in 1996. From the jazz standpoint, there is not much here, as Clooney is accompanied by a huge orchestra conducted and mostly arranged by Peter Matz.

After bouncing around Philips, Atlantic, and Capitol playing Brazilian jazz or searching for an ideal blend of Brazilian and American pop, Sergio Mendes struck gold on his first try at A&M (then not much more than the home of Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass and the Baja Marimba Band).
