Afterglow rounds up the best new releases in vocal jazz, including new albums by Kurt Elling, Madeleine Peyroux, Tierney Sutton, and Norah Jones.
We celebrate the best of 2007 this week on Afterglow, listening to some of the best new releases and reissues.
We'll hear a new release from singer Mark Murphy, as well as a newly-released live 1977 duet between Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder.
This week on Afterglow we’ll feature a recent collection of Judy Garland’s late-1950s and early-1960s Capitol albums. Though Garland has sometimes been branded as a showbiz belter, we’ll be highlighting some of the torch ballads that she recorded for Capitol with arrangers like Gordon Jenkins and Nelson Riddle.
