Make the Man Love Me Joy Bryan




I was impressed by Joy Bryan's debut Joy Bryan Sings arranged by Marty Paich, so I seeked out her second effort. This is even better than her first. Joy Bryan, though unknown, had a style of her own. You can recognize her instantly. This goes through a number of standards. There are a few songs here that are sung memorably, her take of My Romance, East of the Sun and Aren't you glad you're you? are remarkable. This should be on cd.

It seems almost hard for me to believe that others own this, seeing how an internet search suggests that this certainly wasn't a particularly popular LP. I'm glad to see someone else liking and enjoying this album. As we speak, I'm finally digitizing the LP to my computer so I can have it on the go. But somewhat sadly, it seems that out of the whole Contemporary Records archive, this is one of the very few records that never got remastered/reissued on CD, which I think is a shame because this is a truly amazing album that is worth having out for jazz aficionados and audiophiles. The work on this LP reminds me very much of Chet Baker's album "Song For Lovers". Truly a lovely piece that is worth retaining.

Whoa, I sure need to get through your old posts again one of these days. This actually is an album I first learned of here (I'm almost sure). I really love it. Thanks Beth. She's the kind of singer the world needs more of.
