Stepping Out launched the career of one of our generation’s greatest Jazz artists. Diana Krall’s 1993 debut shows that she had the goods right from the get-go. Krall sings with honesty, subtlety, and persuasion while playing the piano with head-shaking authority, both as accompanist – she offers amazing asides in between vocal phrases – and as an absolutely A-one improviser. The Justin Time Essentials Collection introduces the album to a new generation of fans, but this time with an added bonus track from the original sessions – Diana’s incredible arrangement of “Summertime”.

Derrick Hodge’s sophomore album for Blue Note Records which finds the 2-time GRAMMY-winner taking on the roles of producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist to present a singular vision. The results are once rich, raw and revelatory, with Hodge forgoing a conventional band approach and instead playing all of the instruments and contributing vocals himself with only a few exceptions – drums from Mark Colenburg on three tracks and one track featuring horns performed by trumpeter Keyon Harrold, trombonist Corey King, and tenor saxophonist Marcus Strickland.

In previous recordings, the international alliance of Londoner Derek Smith and Brooklynite Ray Cohen has been heard, for the most part, in two-piano interpretations of romantic ballads. But this album is different. There’s an added dimension here. The sound is new—the tempos are bright-and the treatments are decidedly fresh and contemporary. Here, as the subtitle says, are ‘The Keyboard Sounds of Today!”
