Description

American jazz singer and songwriter Sheila Jordan at the age 92 does not show any sign of slowing down or taking it easy, her intensely creative power is evident throughout this album presented in a cross-generational collaboration with trioTrio consisting of three young elite instrumentalists of the New York scene.

The late journalist/author Chris Sheridan's liner notes for Sheila Jordan's first album for SteepleChase 'Sheila' (SCCD31081) declares, "This recording is an acutely personal statement. Only rarely in the history of jazz have a singer's feelings been so affectingly bared...only a few vocalists have had the grit to subordinate technique and style to expressiveness...and the experience is breath-taking." Mr. Sheridan's assertion from 1977 still rings true and even more so.

"A spiritual experience and heart-to-heart communion...Jordan makes these tunes all her own, with personal, almost prayer-like readings." - DownBeat

"Sheila Jordan personifies a song like no one has since Billie Holiday." - Unicorn Times

Personnel: Sheila Jordan (vocal - not on track 3 & 6), Jacob Sacks (piano), David Ambrosio (bass), Vinnie Sperrazza (drums)
