Enough is enough. My emailbox is overflowing. The general consensus seems
to be that Roberta is a wonderful singer, and truly a jazz singer. I was
underwhelmed seeing her live a year ago, but overwhelmed by her CD. I think
it's fantastic. But with all this talk about female vocalists, Grammys, who
is or isn't a jazz singer, and where singers fit in the jazz pantheon, let's
take a moment to remember that the vocal CD of the year in concept and
execution, by a long shot, is Karrin Allyson's Footprints.

This week's sponsor: Russ Kassoff - ''SOMEWHERE'' (2006) - RHK JAZZ 


''It goes without saying that FRANK SINATRA could have enlisted the services of any accompanist he wanted. The fact that he chose RUSS KASSOFF speaks volumes about Kassoff's unequivocal artistry, which is splendidly showcased on SOMEWHERE'' (Jack Bowers-AAJ). After almost 40 years as a professional musician, KASSOFF's first album as a leader features his serene beauty, intriguing style, and vivid concepts as an outstanding composer and gifted improviser. With MARTIN WIND (bass) and TIM HORNER (drums), ''SOMEWHERE is vibrant, compelling, and destined to become an essential component of collections that favor jazz trios'' (Paula Edelstein-AMG). ''Performed with class and a fine touch'' (Marion McPartland), ''SOMEWHERE is a masterpiece'' (Bucky Pizzarelli).
