Sheila Jordan Steve Kuhn Duo- Sheila Jordan's 83rd Birthday Celebration

Jordan's first great influence was Charlie Parker and, indeed, most of her influences have been instrumentalists rather than singers. Working chiefly with black musicians, she met with disapproval from the white community but persisted with her career. She was a member of a vocal trio who sang versions of Parker's solos in a manner akin to that of the later Lambert, Hendricks And Ross.

Sophie Milman

'In The Moonlight" finds Sophie's new E1 recording sharing some of the romantic and heartfelt moments in life. On her previous acclaimed recording "Take Love Easy," Sophie admitted, "If I am self analyzing, the first two albums were about where I came from, issues of the past. 'Take Love Easy'" was "... more about the future. This new recording is about that future, here and now, as Sophie matches musical sensibilities with guests Lewis Nash, Randy Brecker, Chris Potter, Larry Grenadier and Toronto-based pianist extraordinaire Robi Botos under the guidance of producer Matt Pierson.
