Stuck to the letter J - Stars Sounds The Best




I fell for Jackie and Roy when I found their "Changes" LP on Verve about 12 years ago. "Didn't want to have to do it" is still one of my all time faves in vocal Jazz.
When I discovered this beauty in one of my favourite recordstores in Berlin (PLATTEN PEDRO, who knows a story to almost every LP he sells) I knew that it must be something special. At home I threw away my Novi Singers LPs ....

cheers, Basso

Basso,

Jackie and Roy have a huge fan base here in Japan - all of the LPs have been reissued on CD/SACD/audio-friggn CD/etc. :)

Seriously though, Japanese jazz fans seem to prefer jazz vocals quite a lot.

Nice to see someone else appreicate them,

Cheers,

JN
