Jackie Parris, Together Again

A nightowl at fourteen, I listened to Norm on HDH to the wee hours in my housing project bedroom a mile from the Mass Ave jazz clubs of those dear dead days. It was there in the room that overlooked a storage warehouse I first heard Jackie Parris doing Skylark like no one ever again or before. The purity of sound and the feeling filled inflection ...and the pure technical control of a a unique vocal instrument...stayed with me these fifty odd years...some odder than others! If you ever hear a sweeter, neater We''ll Be Together Again, call me, collect. Or You're Mine You. Twelve great cuts, one great unique voice, stilled just recently. So good to have Skylark again.

A taste worth acquiring

Jackie Paris could be described as an acquired taste, but his talents are surely worth the effort. He was a significant presence for 50+ years, although he never became the household name his fans hoped of him. "Skylark" was a recording that gave him his first major exposure to a mass audience. It's been a hard-to-find collector's item for a long time, and kudos to iTunes for making it available. This old LP sounds great in its new, digital life. It will introduce Jackie to a new generation of fans, and delight those who have worn the grooves down on their original copy.

Skylark, by Jackie Paris.

I love this album, It brings me back to the 50's My older brother played it till the record warped (78rpm). Jackie Paris had a sweet mellow voice. I tried in the past to get this recording but until now I finally got it. I'll enjoy it greatly. The songs are fabulous. Skylark, If love is good to me, I'm through with love, and the rest. Thank you! Paul.
