Thrilled that Pat brought in Alan Broadbent to do string arrangements for his new record. Every Time I Think of You is one of my favorite Broadbent records with strings. Developing Story is also great. It seems that string arrangements are often dismissed by jazz critics. Some of my favorite records by Bill Evans have strings. Bill Evans’ Trio with Symphony is amazing. So is Symbiosis. Pat’s Secret Story is another great ’jazz with strings’ record. Any others?

Bookmark and Share Well, Bob, I have to thank you again. Because of your recommendation, I came across Eliane Eliason Sings and Plays Bill Evans, with her husband Marc Johnson (I didn’t know they were married), This is Desert Island stuff for a Bill Evans fan like me. Thank you!

Bookmark and Share Hey, thanks Bob. On my way to checking out your Eliane Elias recommendation, I came across her 1989 album EE plays Jobim. With none other than Nana Vasconcelos on percussion! Listening to it right now. This is good stuff. I’m also an Ogerman fan. I liked Across the Crystal Sea with Danilo Perez. That’s an example of a good strings record that critics just don’t like.

Bookmark and Share Claus Ogerman comes to mind--"Cityscape" w/Michael Brecker and Diana Krall "The Look of Love". A personal favorite of mine is Eliane Elias’s "Bossa Nova Stories" orchestrated by Rob Mathes and co-produced by Steve Rodby.
