I wanted to hear a Blue Note with a reverberant sound so I chose this EMI Japan cd that has a Paris recording and seems to actually be a concept album. . . I can feel the "saudade" in the performances that thinking back to home might bring, or I imagine I do.

Kind of unusual for a singer's album -- she does not even appear on several tracks which spotlight the trumpeters involved (Wallace Roney, Tom Harrell, Lew Soloff and Roy Hargrove).  Tom Harrrell has "Joy Spring" all to himself while Kenny Barron is the sole performer on "Memories of You".

Sort of the reverse of the solo piano albums on Trio that she produced. Al Haig, Roland Hanna, and Tommy Flanagan, iirc. - each record was dedicated to one composer and Helen Merrill sang on one track on each.
