Product Description

Amazon.com

Best known for the 1962 recording John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman, Hartman had a long career that began with Earl Hines and Dizzy Gillespie in the '40s. But there were relatively few opportunities to record and little public recognition for a singer held in such high regard by other musicians. This 1959 session for the Roost label is one of the more obscure of Hartman's albums, receiving little attention before its reissue in 1997, but it's a fine showcase for his consummate abilities: the warm, distinctive glow of his baritone voice, its surprisingly flexible range, and his superb musical phrasing. He also had the ability to give a lyric the feeling of spontaneity, a talent that's apparent here on tunes both well known, like "I Should Care," and more obscure, like "Sunday" and "Alone." He's accompanied here by an unidentified rhythm section and reeds, subtly and unobtrusively orchestrated by Rudy Traylor. --Stuart Broomer

Johnny Hartman has a wonderful smooth Baritone voice and this recording of him highlights it brilliantly. Johnny Hartman is most famous for his collaboration with the immortal Saxaphonist John Coltrane. Although not as outstanding as that recording, this album is excellent and very nice to listen to on those dark nights enjoying the sounds of good Jazz. From "Mam'selle" to "I thought about you" every song he sings is clear and wonderful to listen. This album is highly recommended to all Johnny Hartman fans and those who enjoy a great Jazz vocalist.

An enchanting escape into the the nether world of soulful bliss. Johnny Hartman is one of the all time greats(albeit one who never made the commercial breakthrough). Few artists can deliver you from the stressful experiences of today into the comforting realm of musical tranquility.

I only wish others can feel and therefore experience his melodic mastery. This musical presentation as well as his many others is truly worth so much more than one can possibly imagine.

Johnny Hartman singing in the style he wanted to sing? While I cannot say this definitely, from everything I've learned from reading interviews and from reading "The Last Balladeer" by Dr. Gregg Akkerman, I would say this album came closest to the "pop singing" that Mr. Hartman wanted to be known for.

For starters, this is not jazz. There is no Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Hank Jones or Billy Taylor backing Johnny on this album (this one predated his Impulse recordings by a few years and his Beehive recording with Taylor by more than twenty). There isn't even the talented Ralph Sharon, who had accompanied him a few years earlier on the excellent "Songs from the Heart". These sessions could be referred to as "jazz". They were all fantastic.

On the other hand, "And I Thought About You" is not really Jazz (despite a few of the numbers having a swing or shuffle feel). For the most part, it is the kind of pure and unadulterated pop that could have been (and in some cases, were) sung by Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and Dick Haymes. With apologies to those who think of Hartman as a jazz singer, this particular album is excellent too.

Despite the fact that some of the arrangements are rather pedestrian, Hartman's voice, phrasing and interpretation elevate the material in a manner that makes the instrumentation almost irrelevant. Also, the choice of material really showcases the richness, yet sweetness of his voice. Most importantly, Johnny Hartman's notion that he was an all-around singer and not just a jazz singer is quite credible based upon this effort (and by some of his work on the ABC/Paramount recordings following his Impulse albums).
