Original Impulse Label Recording on Audiophile SACD!
The smooth vocals of Johnny Hartman is backed by a host of back up musicians
including Hank Jones and Bob Hammer on the piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar,
Ozzie Johnson on drums and so many more!
"The lush baritone voice of Johnny Hartman enriched many big bands in the
Forties and Fifties including Dizzy Gillespie's and Erol Garner's. But in the
sixties he recorded many fine albums as leader and with all-star small groups.
Although not as popular as some of his other releases, "The Voice That Is" is an
exceptional showcase of his beautiful talent.
"Hartman is clearly the central figure in this recording. He doesn't share the
limelight with many soloists as on his other jazz-oriented albums of the same
period. The backing music is wonderfully arranged by Bob Hammer in total support
of his singing." - Bret Arenson, allaboutjazz.com
