I have recently gotten into Kurt Elling. I thought he was interesting before but somehow I just never clicked with him. In the meantime I really got into Betty Carter and digested her innovations and I think that when revisiting Elling this really helped me to see his own vision and his own decidedly heavy skill at both singing and interpreting.

Listened to this one today, a recent arrival care of the only biter of tires we have on the forum. ;) It has blown me away, I love the concept of love and loss that permeates the song selection and that is so effectively conveyed through the singing. The centerpice, "You Don't Know What Love Is," is a powerful performance. It made me think of the years of separation due to her mental Illness my late wife and I went through, and also the parting I was forced to make over seven years ago from "the one that got away." I'll just say I was snapped to attention listeneing, and very moved. An excellent recording as well. The horns are nice, but I think I would have liked this one trio only.

Then I thought of another male vocalist that I think has mad skills, Andy Bey, and I put on "Black Maybe" from the Gary Bartz LP I listened to yesterday. This is a very different type of performance, but a great one for me. I love Syreeta's version of this tune as well.

Then on to another extremely talented singer, Rhianon Giddens. What an amazing human being, what a consummate musician. This one is full of atmosphere and recorded to deliver.

Myriam Alter "Where is There"

This is a beautiful disc. The playing is chamber jazz with a latin (Argentinian) feel, and the beautiful cello of Jacques Morelenbaum is wonderfully featured.

It can be background or can rivet your attention to it's charm. And it's very nicely recorded in Germany.
