Barbra Streisand, ONE NIGHT ONLY: At the Village Vanguard (Columbia, DVD & CD, $19.98) – Ms Streisand did a special performance in New York’s most renowned jazz club last September to launch her CD, Love is the Answer. Backed by a quartet, she sings standards (“In the Wee Small Hours,” “Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered,” “Happy Days are Here Again,” “My Funny Valentine”) and her hits (“The Way We Were,” “Evergreen”).
Frank Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim, SINATRA/JOBIM: The Complete Reprise Recordings (Concord, $18.98) — Frank Sinatra got together with Antonio Carlos Jobim for recording sessions and a memorable television show in 1967. They followed with more sessions in 1969. Sinatra sings soft and low, getting into the spirit of bossa nova; the arrangements are by Claus Ogerman and Eumir Deodato. These are classic sides, and have been out of print for a long time; they return in fine remastered fashion.
Carole King & James Taylor, LIVE AT THE TROUBADOUR (Hear Music, DVD & CD, $19.98) – Carole King and James Taylor first played at L.A.’s Troubadour in 1970, and reunited there in 2007 to celebrate the club’s 50th anniversary. They trade hit songs accompanied by long-time band mates Danny Kortchmar on guitar, Leland Sklar on bass, and Russ Kunkel on drums. King and Taylor are touring together this summer, stopping at the Verizon Center on June 8 and 23.
Catherine Russell, INSIDE THIS HEART OF MINE (World Village, $18.98) – Catherine Russell brings her smoky alto to jazz and blues songs from bygone eras, and makes them her own. Scott Simon did a nice interview with Ms Russell last Saturday, and she will be part of this year’s Mary Lou Williams Jazz Festival at the Kennedy Center on Friday, May 21.
