The late singer Irene Kral is still too much of a well-kept secret. Perhaps it's because she died relatively young, in 1978 at age 46, after a nearly 20-year career. Or maybe her conversational tone and discerning musical taste made her more of an intimate cabaret artist than an out-and-out jazz singer.
That intimate tone suffuses the classic WHERE IS LOVE? recorded in 1974 with pianist Alan Broadbent and boasting a superlative version of the cabaret favorite "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most." Keeping it in the New York cabaret family, the set opens with a Blossom Dearie original "I Like You, You're Nice"--talk about conversational! But the highlight is a beautifully sung medley of Johnny Mandel's "A Time For Love" coupled with "Small World" from GYPSY. One might not expect those two songs to fit together--the former utterly romantic, the latter a little prosaic--but Kral's special vocal gifts combine the two perfectly.
