True, McRae is captivating and inspired on this Billie Holiday classic, one of the highlights of Birdland West, but this is supposed to be a collection of ballads, not a blues collection.
Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. Introspection Late Night Partying. A brilliant collaboration between two of the great stars of jazz, this CD features both stars at their best, but Shearing's piano also makes McRae sound more vulnerable--less dramatically assertive than usual--as she sings torchy and impassioned lyrics--a lovely change of pace.
Mary Whipple. One of the top 5 jazz singers to come along in my lifetime, Carmen sounds shaky and tentative on this outing. At times I Album) the feeling that she's trying to make up in dramatic interpretation what she's missing vocally on this date.
Shearing's accompanying, soloing, and even singing of Mancini's underrated, gorgeous ballad, "Two for the Road" is as sterling as the support he offers on similar albums pairing him with Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, and Mel Torme.
But here Carmen does not always rise to the occasion. After an exquisite and extended interpretation of "Too Late Now," Shearing yields to the entrance of the vocalist.
One almost wishes he hadn't. This session finds her paired with piano great George Shearing. Shearing is obviously a giant in his own right, pioneering a sound in the 50's and 60's that was purely his creation.
Fortunately for vocalists he is what they consider a singer's piano player in great company with folks like Sir Roland Hanna, Hank Jones and Tommy Flanagan. When backing a singer of McRae's magnitude he lays back and grooves, never infringing on the vocals, simply making them all the better.
For more proof of this check out his recordings with Nancy Wilson, Mel Torme and Peggy Lee A most welcomed surprise from this session is a vocal duet between McRae and Shearing that is simply magic. And she is in her finest swingin' form on "Gentleman Friend" -- Dig Shearing's 2-fisted playing on the latter track, sounds like a whole rhythm section in his left hand. Mcrae fans and Shearing fans alike should truly appreciate the history that is made when 2 musicians of this magnitude record together.
Every album Carmen McRae recorded is worth hearing, Miss McRae had impeccable taste, so if her name is on the cover buy it. This particular session is very intimate, with just George Shearing at the piano. I love instrumentalist who occasionally sing. Their voices are not polished but they have a certain quality that is fabulous. That adjective is not suffecient to say how good this title song is. Need customer service? Click here.
