A Treasure

Sheila Jordan Harvie S 'Yesterdays' a treasure From the Seattle times
New CDs released Tuesday, Jan. 31, include jazz singer Sheila Jordan's splendid live duets with bassist Harvie S, "Yesterdays."
Sheila Jordan Harvie S, 'Yesterdays' (High Note)
Years ago, the incomparable but perennially underrecognized jazz vocalist Sheila Jordan made a duet album with bassist Arild Andersen, "Sheila," that is one of the treasures of my collection. High Note has now released a live recording from the early '90s of Jordan with bassist Harvie S that hits that mark again.
Jordan's high, light, mischievously supple voice and Harvie S's toffee-rich, dexterous bass achieve an orchestral completeness that never for a minute makes you feel anything is missing.

On "Lazy Afternoon," Jordan slips into Meredith Monk-like Native American mode, then closes with a version of "I Could Have Danced All Night" that ends with a capricious soprano imitation of Julie Andrews.

One of the most consistently creative of all jazz singers, Sheila Jordan has a relatively small voice, but has done the maximum with her instrument. She is one of the few vocalists who can improvise logical lyrics (which often rhyme), she is a superb scat singer, and is also an emotional interpreter of ballads. Yet despite her talents, Jordan spent much of the 1960s and '70s working at a conventional day job. She studied piano when she was 11 and early on, sang vocalese in a vocal group. Jordan moved...
