The earliest work we've ever seen from Azie Mortimer – a hip album of vocal jazz tracks that predates some of her later soul material! Azie's got a really great style – lean, expressive, and with these great elements that really take her past more conventional jazz vocals – still inside, but with a cool groove that's definitely trying for more than the usual. Some moments have a 60s groovy swing, but still with a good deal of soul in the mix – and the set features arrangements by Mercer Ellington, and a group that includes Phil Woods on alto, Harold Ashby and Jerome Richardson on tenor, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and Mundell Lowe on guitar. The best cuts include an uptempo version of "Milestones", plus readings of "On Green Dolphin Street", "Capricious", and "Whisper Not".
Written by Rumpole of the Bailey creator John Mortimer, this six-part television dramatisation is based on the sixteen years that William Shakespeare is known to have spent in London, remains one of the most impressive biographical portraits to date. With each episode built around the creation of a single play, a skilful interweaving of known events and contemporary interpretation show how key experiences may have inspired some of Shakespeare’s greatest works - the death of his young son, and his love for the famous ‘dark lady’ of the sonnets, for example. The bustling taverns and theatres of Elizabethan London are lavishly recreated, while Shakespeare himself is played with tremendous sensitivity and breadth by Tim Curry.
