LP | NEW  | 2018



Limited Edition of 500 copies, Reissue, 180 gram, includes 2 bonus tracks. The singer’s first major LP release, Songs from the Heart, was recorded in New York in October, 1955 and featured Hartman backed by trumpeter Howard McGhee, pianist Ralph Sharon, bassist Jay Cave and drummer Christy Febbo. The album, presented here, included a unique blend of classics from the jazz and pop idiom. As is often the case with albums of rare brilliance, it is difficult to pick out any particular highlights. Cole Porter’s “Down in the Depths (of the 90th Floor)” certainly receives the most unusual treatment, with the rhythm section seamlessly switching between a Latin groove and a steady swing feel.
