Sheila personifies jazz. PORTRAIT OF SHEILA was the first album by a singer in the history of Blue Note Records.

Thank you Mark Myers for shining the spotlight on the musical treasure that is Sheila Jordan! Thanks also for the tip about her recording session with Peter Ind - I was unaware of it.


Thanks for the tip, Bill. Will go for it. The LP may be rare though. But I have my secret sources beside crowded "Eh Bay".

Purely by chance I came across the interview just as Ms.Jordan's version of Dat Dere was playing in my two year old twin daughters' bedroom (I made them a going to sleep tape - ballads by Satch, Lambert,Hendricks and Ross and suchlike - Dat Dere is the last song they hear before going to sleep - indoctrination starts early in my house!) In any case, great interview with a wonderful singer. Thanks.
