Carol Kidd: Dreamsville





This makes for very easy, relaxed listening. Kidd has a fine and very smooth singing style. The very relaxed guitar work from the accompanying Nigel Clark is quite noteworthy, in my opinion.

Stan Getz Quartet: Pure Getz





I find this to be a terrific and exciting album. It is filled with energy. The playing from all concerned, both individually and collectively, is wonderful. It all sounds very polished and accomplished.

Been years since I've spun it, but I remember this being a good album.

Welcome back John!  ;D

8) Thanks, but I'm not really in a classical mood, so my posts will be rather limited. Good to see you, Manabu. :)

I see you're listening to Freddie Hubbard. 8) Let me ask you, how large is your jazz CD collection?

Art Farmer: Something To Live For - The Music Of Billy Strayhorn



I have always felt that Farmer's beautifully understated style was underrated. This is a great album.
