I'm no Barbra Streisand fan but I'm not anti-Barbra either.

This is an early work by her, it's passionate, nuanced, and the arrangement behind her is terrific.  Her phrasing, emotional take represents the lyrics to the song. She brought it to a nice climax, you can hear the sexual excitement one touch incited. She nailed it on this one.

Another performance that really sells the lyrics of the song. I think of Tom Jones as the UK's Elvis Presley. A great natural singer and a hit with the girls. Ben E King did a very good job on this song, Tom Jones did a great job on this song.

I (Who Have Nothing) - Tom Jones

Another singer who expresses the words of the song in his delivery, phrasing, dynamics. Etc. And he's my favorite jazz singer.

How Are You Dreaming - Mark Murphy

The musicianship on this album is awesome. One of the instruments I play is drums, and I am always impressed by Bernard Purdy's playing. He sets up a great groove, supports the song incredibly well, uses tasty fills, and never gets in the way of the song. So today I'm listening mostly for the drums. I've learned a lot listening to Pretty Purdy.

The Royal Scam - Steely Dan

Good choice Bill. Diana is the real deal.

Another great jazz gal on piano and vocals is Eliane Elias

Call Me - Eliane Elias

She's a Brazilian so it's only right to include this

Chega De Saudade - Eliane Elias
