It was a visit to my home by Mark Murphy wich introduced me to the work of Tom Lellis with a tape of this album."some people are saying this guy sounds like me."he said. While he sings in a simular vein I thought Lellis is his own man. I tried so difficult to get this LP for a long time, these were the days before the internet and Amazon. Some years later I found it in the basement of a small shop in Amsterdam. Over the years I have purchased all his work on CD and enjoyed them all, he's some kind of artist. Once I even had the pleasure of seeing a live performance in NYC. But he has not made a new album for some years now, and I so looked forward to every one in them in the past. A truely great artist and this was his very first. If you like vocal jazz, you will love this one, then I bet you will get the others. They are still availible
It is a wonder Lellis's debut came when he was 35 and he waited 12 years for his next recording release. Tom has a pleasant but distinctive baritone with a slightly odd vibrato and he is an original vocalist, pianist and songwriter.
One of the best jazz vocalists of all time on his debut recording. Great music all throughout.
