Rare Silk is an astounding jazz ensemble with arrangements as difficult as Gene Puerling's, and a sound to match Puerling's "Singer's Unlimited." This group is amazing.

The second studio release for Rare Silk captures the essence of rare/vocal jazz which had become a genre missing from American music after the popularity of Manhattan Transfer/New York Voices fame cooled in the late 1980s. The Rare three part harmony that feature layers of brilliant vocals and upbeat jazz accompaniment is rare indeed. Unfortunately for the jazz fan this genre and inparticular this fine ensemble dewindled into obscurity in the early 80s. The group showed signs of great promise. The artistry of this group will have to suffice with just a few release dates but the few that were released are sure to be classics and rare episodes of jazz vocal harmony at it's best.

I have American Eyes on tape. Great Album!

This group amazes me. They have it down in every way. Great musicianship, intonation, blend, super arrangements. The lead singer, Marguerite Juenemann, sounds as good as the best lead horn player. Too bad there is not a re-issue on the CD's. I agree with the other reviewer. They are right there with Singers Unlimited.

I can't find the Eddie Harris Album, "Sounds Incredible" with "You Know It's Wrong" (from their New Weave Album) Rare Silk really swings on this tune! Then there is New York Afternoon (From "New Weave")! What an uplifting arrangement & performance of this tune!!

If you are in a bad mood, listen to this group and feel better!

Albums: Black & Blue, American Eyes, New Weave.

I found one other tune on Rhapsody on Little Drummer boy.

What is the swing tune they do at the Breckenridge Jazz Picnic just before they perform "You Know It's Wrong ?

Vocal Jazz reminiscant of Manhattan Transfer, in my opinion. A little Brazilian vibe is mixed in for good measure

Here are the songs:

1- OOOPS! (No "I Did It Again", does not follow!!!)

2- Watch What Happens

3- 'Round Midnight

4- Hello

5- American Eyes

6- Storm

7- Up From The Skies

8- Burn It
