Info:

“Recorded on October 15, 28, 1957 at Capitol Studio in Los Angeles. 

“LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE was recorded at the same time as her albums with Louis Armstrong and in the midst of her epic ‘Songbooks’ project, celebrating the composers of the ‘Great American Songbook’ and Broadway. The album features only four songs written by the composers featured in her ‘Songbooks’, instead concentrating on very famous ballads by lesser known writers. Some songs on the album were also recorded with Louis Armstrong on the albums that they collaborated on. Stan Getz is featured on tenor sax on four tracks, including ‘Midnight Sun’ and ‘You’re Blasé.’ Ted Nash plays the alto sax and solos. Cover photos are by the great Phil Stern. LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE was targeted at ‘people in love.’ But its real audience, then as now, was anyone who loves timeless songs impeccably sung. What was timeless in 1957 still is.”

Aaoka Ai, a fan, wrote, “‘Jazz is everything,’ I’ve heard said. I have no argument. Just listen to this perfectly sung and performed contemporary perfection.”

Price: £1 (GBP) for track; £5 (GBP) for 16-track album

Genre: Jazz.
