CD Review: Linda Calise - La Vie My Life

I'm looking for that special girl, the one that is different from all the other women in the world, you know who I mean, that elusive creature, the one who doesn't aspire to be a jazz singer - but, like Laura, she may be only a dream.
Linda Calise is better than most and she doesn't sing Summertime although she does include Good Morning Heartache - another 'give it a rest girls' number.,The other tracks are more choice with A Sunday Kind of Love outstanding. This is a song that I've loved ever since I heard Fran Warren singing it with the legendary Claude Thornhill Orchestra. Every singer should have this one in their pad but, if they did, then it would become another Summertime so it's best they don't although I'm glad Linda did - she's moved it up from Fran Warren who was a high benchmark act to begin with!
Soloists intertwine with the voice - it's a magical experience.
Full details here.
Lance.

I don't know Fran Warren's version - but Ella Fitzgerald's is a bit good!! It's a lovely song ......
