"In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you've set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Rudy Van Gelder's studio!" - Blue Note President, Don Was.
Portrait Of Sheila is the jazz singer's widely acclaimed debut. Joined by Barry Galbraith, Steve Swallow and Denzil Best, the recording is one of Blue Note's first vocal albums. Her distinguished tone dazzles on tunes including "Hum Drum Blues," "Falling In Love With Love," "Dat Dere" and more. This pivotal classic is included on The Penguin Guide to Jazz's "Core Collection" and remains one of the finest jazz vocal debuts ever recorded.
