The renown singer, Abbey Lincoln, succeeds musically by doing what she does best; setting her cafe style temperment to cafe-esque songs she composed. Here she uses mostly guitar including pedal steel, bass, accordion etc. Very sparse use of cello. Good but not great album. If you like Abbey it is worth a listen.

great album, memorable and beautiful songs written by Abbey Lincoln, recorded in her 60's giving them great perspective, insight and maturity - love this album!

Tremendous collection. Abbey Lincoln is a special talent. Music is the Magic is one of the best songs I have heard in a long time.

Abbey Lincoln is great. We discovered her in the past month or so on the radio.

Old line jazz vocals meets Larry Campbell's astute production values- a treat for sore ears

I heard Blue Monk on the radio, and wanted to find out more. So I just downloaded that one cut. Larry Campbell's guitar stuff is killer. So what if she's a little over the hill? This still gets me where I want to got.
So I worked out the guitar stuff in A, am learning the lyrics, and may give it a shot the next time I do an open mike night somewhere.

I guess I should listen to the rest of the album.

.. when an ageing Jazz Diva wants to sound like the successful performers of the present at all costs: a well respected Jazz singer of 40 years winds up as an epigone to Norah Jones. Imperfect diction included. Must have been the idea of some clever product placement manager to record this album. But still 2 stars for people who like popcountryjazz-kitsch.
