Pl recommend good jazz vocals cds


Recommended Posts

Just got into this genre of music recently and wants more of it. :P Must be good recordings and preferably with more musical instruments. Pl recommend.

 

Something like Diana Krall's The Look of Love cd. Are her other albums good? I find Jacintha's albums lacks musical instruments.

Hate to be a wet blanket but KRall (IMHO) is one of the most overrated jazz vocalists who ride the "white and blonde" tide to fame... I would recommend the following jazz legends

 

Billie Holiday

Latin in Satin,

Songs for the Distingue Lovers

 

Ella Fitzgerald

Best of Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Any of her song book series (from Verve records)

Ella and Count Basie

 

Sarah Vaughan

Swingin' Easy

 

More recently, this album impressed me greatly

Karin Allison

Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane

IMHO, the Cai Qin Jin Pian Zi SACD is much much better sonically compared to the Best Collection SACD.

For male vocals, my current faves are:

tim tamashiro & steve tyrell (just killer voices!)

 

Female:

anything by Ella Fitzgerald! Shes the goddess of jazz vocals! Try her duet album with Louis Armstrong

Ann Hampton Callaway is good too

Eva Cassidy is a must listen! Not purely jazz, but just darn solid vocals...
