Wow, Marc...I wasn't expecting such an intense interview. Her memoir will be fascinating!

Thanks again, Marc, for another splendid interview with one of the survivors of a long gone era.

Sheila Jordan sounds like a completely honest and unpretentious woman. A rare find nowadays, in the greed-poisoned, almost entirely commercialized music business/ industry.

And those strings at "Confirmation" are hilarious, simply masterful! It's also very nice to see that Sheila doesn't need all those hand, or head movements some of the young jazz vocalists are often using as if they'd play a flute or a sax.

She is completely relaxed, and at ease.

Jack Segal's/ George Handy's "Where You At" is another masterwork, unfortunately forgotten today. It really has hit qualities.

Here's an excerpt with Zoot Sims, doing the ... vocal:

A remarkable subject, and a remarkable interviewer.

Continued thanks.
