Description

Repress of a classic SteepleChase LP on 180g vinyl, Sheila Jordan who turned 90 on November 18, 2018 recorded this celebrated album 'Sheila' 40 years ago in Oslo, Norway in a duo setting with Norwegian bassist Arild Andersen. 'Sheila' helped propel Jordan's career into international recognition.

On 'Sheila' the world's press wrote:

"Sheila Jordan is one of the foremost of contemporary jazz vocalists." - Black Music & Jazz Review

"Jordan makes these tunes all her own, with personal, almost prayer-like readings on tales of personal devotion...Listening to this record may make you wonder where this honest, sensitive yet powerful vocalist has been all these years." - Downbeat *****

"This album is a welcome addition to Jordan's sparse discography, and it further establishes her as a vocalist of considerable accomplishment" - Coda

"Detroit singer courageously performs a dozen standards with only Andersen's acoustic bass behind her. But Jordan pulls it offHer talent is unquestionable." - Billboard (Recommended LP)
