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),
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!
