Product Description:

This was a breakthrough recording for Sheila Jordan. She recorded a superb album for Blue Note in 1962 and then was off records (and only working in jazz on a part-time basis) up until the mid-'70s. She cut two albums for tiny labels and then came this, the first of her vocal-bass duet recordings. While in later years bassist Harvie Swartz would be her frequent musical partner, Jordan's SteepleChase set features the talented Arild Andersen on bass. The communication between the two often borders on the miraculous and it is a pleasure to hear Sheila Jordan's fresh and original interpretations of such songs as "Lush Life," "On Green Dolphin Street," "Don't Explain" and "Better than Anything." ~ Scott Yanow

Sheila Music Lover: from North Carolina -- September, 12, 2008

While visiting Denmark , I discovered this oldie.
What a special treat to hear Sheila Jordan sing in her early years. She celebrates her 80th birthday this NOV 2008 in NYC at Dizzys. Happy Birthday Sheila......we Love you . Your unique style shone bright back then and still comes across to knock us! I am listening to "If you could see me now" which is one of my favs. Sheila Jordan has a huge impact on those who hear her.You must get this and treat yourself. She is real and she learned the language of jazz directly from Charlie Parker among many other great masters of jazz.
She is so beautiful....listening to her makes my heart ache since it gets so full it wants to burst .... kinda like smelling a night orchid blooming in Jamaica. Much Love and Happy Birthday Sheila.
