The final known, unreleased recording featuring jazz vocal legend Irene Kral and the Alan Broadbent Trio, recorded live in Studio City, California in 1975. "A voice as pure and exquisite as Lalique crystal." -- JazzTimes "A superb ballad singer who always put plenty of emotion and subtlety into her often haunting interpretations, Irene Kral stood near the top of her field during her shortened life." -- All Music Guide * Features three songs never recorded by Irene Kral in her long and successful career--"The Night Has a Thousand Eyes," "Second Chance," and "This Masquerade."
* Also includes two first-ever small group versions of "Sometime Ago" and "Something To Remember You By."
* Features Alan Broadbent, longtime collaborator with Irene Kral, Charlie Haden, and Natalie Cole.
* Irene Kral was not just another jazz singer. She had a delicate style, yet every note was placed with deliberate aim, and she always hit her mark with unerring accuracy. She recorded only a small number of albums, often on small jazz labels. Most aficionados of female vocalists have never heard of her, and she remains largely forgotten in the jazz history books. Yet her work deserves to be searched out, for her intimate style and purity of tone.
