Redefining the World of Female Jazz!
Over the past decade, new talent such as Cassandra Wilson, Patricia Barber
and Holly Cole have re-defined the world of female jazz vocals. Cole's
Temptation, a 1995 Blue Note release, is her musical tribute to the writings of
Tom Waits. Besides being a superb audiophile recording, perfect in every
production detail from Cole's amazing voice to the incredible natural sound
captured by producer Craig Street and his team, this recording went on to garner
kudos for her personal interpretation of Waits' unique compositions. Standouts
include a catchy version of Jersey Girl, which made it to some radio playlists.
