Shirley Horn is one of the great voices in jazz, her warmly breathy, slightly gritty voice investing ballads with rare depths of meaning. There's a level of emotional intensity here that's achieved by few singers, and it's made even more compelling by Horn's innate reserve. On May the Music Never End, Horn acts as producer as well, and she eschews the lush string accompaniments of 2001's You're My Thrill for the minimum accompaniment of a piano trio. It only magnifies the intimacy of her performance, with pianist George Mesterhazy's spare, understated chords gently lapping against her voice on songs like Paul McCartney's "Yesterday" and Michel LeGrand's "Watch What Happens." Long-time drummer Steve Williams adds real drama to "Everything Must Change." Horn has always had a special affinity with trumpet players–having recorded with both Miles Davis and Wynton Marsalis–and here Roy Hargrove turns up on two tracks, adding subtle punch to "Take Love Easy" and "Ill Wind." There is also a guest appearance by Ahmad Jamal, and his sparkling piano further illuminates "Maybe September" and "This Is All I Am."

Silje Nergaard – Nightwatch (2003)

Apart from an almost unrecognisably languid arrangement of David Bowie and Pat Metheny's This Is Not America, Nergaard composed all the music herself, but while the music fits her beguiling, wide-eyed intonation perfectly, collaborator Tim McGurk's English lyrics are less successful.
Although there are occasional glimpses of brilliance, in general the barren phrases and overwrought verses show nowhere near the same level of precision or flair as the music.
This deficiency, combined with the quiet intensity and tidy lyrics of the Nergaard-penned closer (sans McGurk), On And On, may induce you to seek out Nergaard's more experimental (and self-produced) Norwegian language releases. Nergaard may be regarded as being at the forefront of the contemporary European jazz scene but on Nightwatch, she seems just as comfortable lounging around with more conventional pieces like In A Sentence.
It's the innovative blend of exuberant jazz plus a liberal pinch of this and that which really sets the mood of Nightwatch.

To put it quite plainly, Unearthed is essential for anyone who loved the last 10 years of Johnny Cash's recording career - his years with producer Rick Rubin on American Recordings, which many (including myself) consider the best years of Cash's long and storied career. This set features not merely the best of the rest of those recordings, but the rest of the best. While some of them are not fully realized, there are many genuine revelations contained within. It boggles the mind how some of them did not make the original albums; some could have worked interchangeably, some are unquestionably better, while some, perhaps, simply did not fit the mood of the album. In any case, this boxed set, thoughtfully, has not been sequenced randomly: each of the first three discs is thematic and corresponds to a specific American album(s); the fourth, My Mother's Hymn Book, is a never-before-released gospel album; and the final disc is a Best Of for Cash on American records. As such, each disc stands very well on its own.

In my opinion the last track “Hurt” on this 5th disc may well be his best recording ever. Cash trying to prove himself that he’s still alive and aware of things, while looking back on his life. Very impressive and touching at the same time !!!
