Irene Kral: Karal Space
For those not that familiar with Kral, she's Roy Kral's sister from Jackie & Roy. Irene sang with Maynard Ferguson for a short time and made a great LP called "The Band & I" with Herb Pomeroy (UA 4016 and well worth searching the LP bins for). Two of Irene's vocals were on Clint Eastwood's "Bridges of Madison County" sound track.
Breast cancer cut short the talented vocalist's life at 46 in 1978. Always thought of as a "vocalist's vocalist". If you have never heard Ms. Kral you owe it to yourself to start with this CD which is a fine example of her warm and intimate ballad style.
