American classic by Willie Nelson( Recording )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legendary singer Willie Nelson American Classic is his first album of standards since his landmark 1978 masterpiece Stardust, and his solo debut for Blue Note Records. Produced by Tommy LiPuma, American Classic features special guest appearances by Norah Jones and Diana Krall, string arrangements by Johnny Mandel, and a top shelf backing band that includes Nelson's longtime sidekick Mickey Raphael on harmonica, and such notable jazzmen as pianist Joe Sample, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Lewis Nash. While it's common now for mature pop artists to attempt to put their own stamp on the American Songbook, Nelson practically invented the approach. He set the standard for playing the standards with Stardust, perhaps this "outlaw" entertainer's most daring move. The album went on to become the most successful album of his career thus far. It reached #1 on the Billboard's Country Albums chart; racked up more than five million in sales; earned Nelson a Country Male Vocal Performance Grammy; and, most significantly, helped to transform a colourful, middle-aged cult figure into a mainstream star

No regrets by Randy Crawford( Recording )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Randy Crawford er en soulsangerinne med et kjent navn i Norge fra sine tidligere utgivelser. "No regrets" følger opp suksessen Crawford og pianisten Joe Sample hadde med albumet "Feeling Good" fra 2006. Her spiller og synger de to klassiske amerikanske sanger som Every day I have the blues, Respect yourself, Starting all over again og Lead me on. Albumet er produsert av Tommy LiPuma og Joe Sample, og resultatet er et modent album som best beskrives som en krysning mellom pop og soul ledet av Crawfords vakre stemme

Court and spark by Joni Mitchell( Recording )

11 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

COURT AND SPARK completed Joni Mitchell's transition from folk-singer to sophisticated rock auteur. In addition to her meticulously crafted melodies and evocative, image-rich lyrics, the songs here are breezy and immediately appealing. This is in part due to Tom Scott's L.A. Express, a sinuous jazz-based combo, but also to Mitchell's knack for pop hooks, which abound on COURT AND SPARK. The album's accessibility made it Mitchell's most commercially successful, yet the personal intensity and insight of her songwriting never wavers. "Help Me" was a hit single, as was "Free Man in Paris, " an expansive pop frolic that is reputedly a dig at industry mogul David Geffen. Mitchell returns to the terrain of piano balladry on "The Same Situation" and "Down to You; " yet even on these, as on the excellent social satire "People's Parties, " one can hear the influence of jazz on her vocal phrasing and intonations. The rock & roll romp "Raised on Robbery" and the bluesy, comic swing of "Twisted" mix things up a bit, showing the artist's increasing ability to master and manipulate any form. COURT AND SPARK is one of Mitchell's finest albums, confirming her standing--at long last--as one of the most important and subtle talents of the rock era
