"One thing not typical about this album is the inclusion of an additional vocalist, the deep voiced Mark Murphy. Often they take turns with the theme, but occasionally they have some humorous dramatic banter (Where you at?). On "Quasimodo/Embreacable You", Jordan sings the Charlie Parker tune simultaneously with Murphy singing the Gershwin; with some scat that makes a great tribute to Bird. The rhythm section is solid, and taken together, the tunes artfully pace mood, tempo, and texture.
As for Jordan, she shapes her voice and phrasing so effortlessly, fluent as it fluidly morphs about blues inflections.
Good luck finding this. It will be sad if this recording does not return to publication.
