We mark the 100th anniversary of the birth (April 7th) of one of the greatest voices in jazz on Monday night. This Verve album, from 1957, was perhaps her final great album, as her voice and health deteriorated and her body finally gave out in '59. You can hear the decline in her voice compared to her '30's and '40's work with Ellington, Henderson, Lunceford, Basie, & Shaw, but you can also hear the intense passion she still brought to these songs.

Raul Malo and company are back with a terrific new collection out of steamy Miami. Not content to rest with just rockabilly, R&B, and the various Latino styles they mash together, they've got some reggae/ska grooves here too, perhaps replacing their Country/Western origins a bit. And it's an album they - yes - recorded in mono.
