This four-LP box set, whose contents have been partly reissued on CD, has all of singer Helen Merrill's output for Mercury; only two selections for the Roost label in 1953 precede these definitive recordings. Merrill, whose warm voice was always both distinctive and flexible, could hold her own with the best jazz musicians of the era. Best known of her recordings are her classic collaborations with Clifford Brown on seven selections arranged by Quincy Jones (including "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" and "Falling in Love With Love"), but almost as significant was a notable album on which she employed the little-known Gil Evans as arranger, a year before he teamed up with Miles Davis for Miles Ahead. Other Mercury dates include work with the Johnny Richards Orchestra, arranger Hal Mooney, flutist Bobby Jaspar, and pianist Bill Evans. Highlights include "Glad to Be Unhappy," "Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year," "Anyplace I Hang My Hat Is Home," "Where Flamingos Fly," and "The Things We Did Last Summer," but all 62 selections are well worth hearing. Highly recommended.

Nat King Cole, un roi pour tous

Intemporel et consensuel, dans le bon sens du terme, Nat King Cole aurait soufflé ses 100 bougies le 17 mars 2019. Pianiste raffiné et crooner satiné, il a raflé les suffrages du grand public des années 40 et 50 tout en fascinant les fans de jazz avec sa classe innée. Au pays des têtes couronnées, le roi (Cole) a bien sa place aux côtés du duc (Ellington) et du comte (Basie).

Norah Jones en 10 chansons

Même si ses albums paraissent sur le label Blue Note, Norah Jones n’a jamais été vraiment jazz. Comme elle n’a jamais vraiment été pop, ni folk, country ou soul… Depuis le début des années 2000, la chanteuse et pianiste américaine a toujours tout fait pour flouter, voire éradiquer, les frontières stylistiques au profit de sa propre musique apatride, qu’elle adore partager avec d’autres musiciens venus d’horizons divers. Petit tour de son monde en 10 titres.

Chris Connor, une voix oubliée

Et si la plus grande chanteuse du jazz cool, c’était elle ? Presque dix ans après sa disparition, Chris Connor reste l’une des voix les plus sensuelles de sa génération. Comme quoi, il n’y a pas qu’Anita O’Day et June Christy dans la vie…
