Romantic Jazz Vocal is one of ten bargain-priced albums from the Dutch label Disky's The Jazz Collection and one of the three theme CDs featuring jazz vocals. Like the other two albums, there are 20 selections of standards and traditional pop, performed by top vocalists and vocal groups of the last 50-plus years, some of who continue to be active. Most of these tracks are from albums released in the 1950s and all are romantic ballads. One of many attractions extended by this CD is that the performances are among the best the individual artists have to offer

Here surely would be a recital of rare sympathy: one of the most purely romantic of all lyricists interpreted by one of the most ravishingly beautiful voices to come along in jazz and popular music this last quarter century. Few new singers of standards display as much awareness of the performing traditions of the American popular song as this Singapore-born and raised jazz singer, whose first album for Groove Note paid explicit tribute to the great tenor saxophonist Ben Webster.
Original music by David Lewis Luong, Australia. Lead vocal by Addie Nicole. David is a member of the 'Music for Good' charity program on Reverbnation.
