A bunch of Broadway standards, Shubert Alley is Torme's masterpiece, a wonderful jazz vocal album ó with Marty Paich and band (featuring Art Pepper) going after the sound of Miles' The Birth Of The Cool.

Aged eighteen, her debut for Verve in 1956.



Toni Harper Lady Lonely, Night Mood
The two albums with the Marty Paich orchestra including Pepper and Rosolino, from 1959 and 1960. She's great on the ballads, super-cool, with fine phrasing and swing throughout... a touch of The Divine One.



Dwight Trible Cosmic
Spiritual jazz vocal in the great tradition of Leon Thomas, Joe Lee Wilson and Andy Bey, with excellent versions of I've Known Rivers and Ooh Child, and several terrific modal numbers; fine backing. Recommended.
