Performance:   Sonics:    
Just wanted to add a comment regarding the multichannel mix: It is the same as the stereo mix except for Kim's voice being in the center and some attenuated stereo mix in the rear.
MCH sound is much better when instruments are spread over the 3 front speakers. Message to Eighty-Eights Records: Please use the potential of MCH fully on future releases. Then these discs will be truely remarkable.

Performance:   Sonics:  
Lady Kim vcl, L. Mayers p, P. Brown b, C. Bean ds, Eighty-Eights 2003.
This is one of the best vocal jazz records I know. Kim`s versions of twelve standards are thrilling, sometimes surprising, always exciting. Most songs are slow melancholic ballads which seem to be Lady Kim`s world. She lays so much soul and emotion into her interpretations so you are captured by each song although been heard so many times before. The band accompanies her perfectly with retention but poignant and with deep feeling. Now and then there is a short exciting solo. If you are in the mood for that, this is a top recommendation. May be there`s the best version of Strange Fruit on this disk since Lady Day`s.
The sound is perfect, rich of colour, very good soundstage and imaging, air for the instruments and the singer to breath, very dynamic, brilliant.
