Synopsis

Album Description
Several noted jazz artists such as drummer Frank Capp, bassist John Leitham, guitarist John Pisano, and bassist Brian Bromberg join the string sections from the Orchestras of Don Bagley (ex-Stan Kenton bassist) and Jimmy Haskell. Corky splits her time on the session equally between piano and harp with five tracks each; other pieces employ her on the vibes and synthesizer. Songs are taken from various songwriters that she has worked with including Bacharach & David, Leiber & Stoller, Marilyn & Alan Bergman and Livingston & Evans.

CD Reviews

One of the great jazz artists of our time shows it
Mervyn Hecht | Port Grimaud, France | 12/15/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Corky Hale is the greatest jazz harpist to ever live, and considered by many jazz greats (Frank Sinantra, Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, Billy Holiday and many others) to be one of the finest musicians in Hollywood. This album demonstrates many of her skills on the harp."
One of the most talented musicians I've ever heard

"Corky Hale's renditions on both harp and piano are incredible. This is an easy listening album with a nice variety of old time jazz like I enjoy."
CORKY IS FABULOUS
Gregory J. Boki | 03/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The album is sheer delight and style. I wanted another album from the 80's Corky did called Harp Beat and managed to find her management company email address. I emailed them and received a phone call from Corky herself who made sure I had the album I was looking for.

Corky is a great talent who had worked with Billy Holiday, Barbara Streisand and so many other great names. From pianist to harpist to vocalist every note she touches is magic.

Corkys music is so refreshing and real.

Thank you Corky for being so caring about your fans and for giving us such beautiful music to enjoy!
