Instead of veering all over the musical map as she did on earlier albums, Muldaur picks a style, sticks to it and comes up with a winner. Heavy on jazz and blues standards by the likes of Duke Ellington, Andy Razaf and Sippie Wallace, including "Gee, Baby Ain't I Good to You" and the Billie Holiday hit "Lover Man," the album includes one modern tune by frequent Muldaur collaborator David Nichtern. Opening with a playful "Cooking Breakfast for the One I Love," this set benefits from pianists Mac Rebennack — also known as Dr. John — and Kenny Barron. Play this album for the one you love, at breakfast or any old time.
Cookin' Breakfast ...
... adorable, but it's a faulty, incomplete file. It stops at 1:25 mins and the song is not complete. Wait to buy that song til it's fixed.
Maria is at her best when she does these jazz and blues numbers, and the keyboard work o this album is outstanding. Song selection is good and balenced. Meet Me Where They Play the Blues, is a simlar album, also well worth buying.
