You Are There: Duets (singer: Hilary Kole)

That a singer on only her second album could employ 11 of the finest pianists (including the late Hank Jones, Dave Brubeck and Benny Green, and two, Alan Broadbent and Mike Renzi, who have made an art of accompanying vocalists), is remarkable.

But that their mutual respect has resulted in a album of such quality is even more so.

This is a jazz singing masterclass with each pianist providing a different nuance to Hilary Kole’s warm, subtle phrasing. Brubeck has never been gentler than on These Foolish Things. Romantic jazz at its best!
