Holly Cole: Temptation        (3 of 3 found this review helpful)
  February 27, 2014

I cannot believe that there has not been an in-depth review of this title. In a word, this release is OUTSTANDING! Holy Cole has a real knack at re-interpreting the songs of other composers and making them her own! In this case it is a showcase of songs by Tom Waits presented on this album. There ... more

What can be said except that this is a classic recording from the 60's. Everyone, their brother and their little dog will be familar with the hits Born to Be Wild and The Pusher from Easy Rider.

You can feel his emotion as he sings each and every cut on this album. You will feel his joy and his pain such is his skill with his voice! He puts such power and ... more
The Voice That Is: Johnny Hartman        (3 of 3 found this review helpful)

This album was recorded by Rudy Van Gelder, probably the greatest jazz recording engineer ever! This album, recorded in 1965, is one of my favourite male jazz vocals. Hartman's voice is rich and so smooth. The way he shades his vocals with emotion and feeling is unbelievable. He is my favourite jazz ... more
