Sheila Jordan / Harvie S: Yesterdays

Read "Yesterdays" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

With Yesterdays, singer Sheila Jordan yet again proves she can take a worn-to-a-sow's-ear standard and--voila!--turn it into a diamond-encrusted silk purse. Her partners in that magic are Harvie S and his beautifully resonating double bass--both assisting ever so deftly in the creative conversion.

Offering previously unreleased material from a 1990 live performance, Jordan and S ...

Myrna Lake: Yesterdays

Read "Yesterdays" reviewed by Samuel Chell

Another album by a female vocalist, another familiar playlist. But hold the assumptions. This is the first and only commercial album by septuagenarian singer Myrna Lake, but that's not the real story here. The recording is noteworthy above all because it refuses to mistake youth for vitality, slickness for substance, or newness for originality.

Keith Jarrett – Gary Peacock – Jack DeJohnette: Yesterdays

Read "Yesterdays" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Keith Jarrett / Gary Peacock / Jack DeJohnette: Yesterdays

Read "Yesterdays" reviewed by John Kelman

Myrna Lake: Yesterdays

Read "Yesterdays" reviewed by Chris Mosey

Yesterdays, vocalist Myrna Lake's second album, follows softly--as opposed to hard--on the heels of her independently released 2002 debut, Close Enough, when she was a spry young thing of 67. A late starter? Well, not really. Lake started singing three-part harmony with her father and sister at age six, and by 14 was performing with the ...

A veteran of the Borscht Belt, hotel dining and ball rooms, Bar Mitzvahs and other assorted social events, Liz Diamond has finally made it to the recording studio after many years in the business. She started quite young. Joined by a quintet of superb sidemen, Diamond applies her considerable experience and panache to a program of ...
