Program notes

The trio of iconic singer Sheila Jordan interprets a selection of luscious jazz standards at Moods in Zurich in 2017. Born in 1928 in Detroit, this legend of vocal jazz has passed through almost all of the recognised jazz styles but specialised in bebop, hardbop, and free jazz. 89 years old, at the time of this recording she helps us reconnect with a selection of jazz from the last century.

A living monument of jazz, she moved to New York in the 1950’s and married Duke Jordan, a pianist in Charlie Parker’s orchestra. It was in the same period that she began her collaboration with Roswell Rudd. Here in this concert, she works with some of the biggest names in the industry: Peter Herbert, double bass player who has collaborated with artists such as John Abercrombie, and Renato Chicco, a pianist who most notably featured in the Lionel Hampton Orchestra in the 1990’s.
