Putumayo's CD covers feature the distinctive art of Nicola Heindl, whose colorful, folkloric style represents one of Putumayo's goals: to connect the traditional to the contemporary. By combining appealing music and visuals with creative retail marketing, Putumayo has developed a unique brand identity - a rarity in today's artist-based music industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music to recover from a computer crash by April 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Seriously. Even as Windows was glaring balefully back at me from a low-res desktop without any of my favorite icons, even as my modem refused to reinstall -- how bad could it be, when I had groovy music like this going in the background?

I got this collection after my local jazz station played a track from it. I'd barely heard of any of the artists but I've since looked up a couple of them individually and bought their CDs. I'm surprised they aren't much more widely known and played, considering how good they are!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional and knowing compilation February 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Typically, when jazz compilations are put together they're pretty mainstream/lame and include the standard big names (Holiday, Fitzgerald, Vaughn) so there is nothing fresh or new for an educated jazz listener.
This cd is a wonderful exception. There are some known and some not-so-known singers on this cd but they are all masterful. The songs stick with you and the arrangements are intriguing and engaging. Particularly special: Shall We Dance? by Stacey Kent, It Could Happen to You by Della Griffin, and Dance Me to the End of Love by Madeleine Peyroux.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sooooooo nice January 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I happened upon this collection at a local book store/ coffee shop. It looked interesting so I gave it a try. What an incredible find. I discovered several wonderful jazz singers that are contemporary yet harken back to a golden age. Silky, smooth ectasy. This has become one of my all time favorite collections. If you enjoy the greats such as Sarah V. try this for a wonderful update. This is a door you will want to walk through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love jazz vocals? September 19, 2009
By Foxone
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Best jazz vocal album I've heard in awhile. Various styles keep the tracks from being ho-hum. Some are standards, others are new. All are fresh and lyrical. Best album I've bought in awhile.
