Mark Murphy – I Love My Wife

(click song title above to listen)

Vocalist Mark Murphy, the iconoclastic cabaret singer, was a six-time Grammy nominee known for his improvisational skill and wide vocal range. Born in Syracuse, New York in 1932, Murphy settled in London in the early 1960s and remained in Europe recording for British labels such as Fontana and Immediate before returning to the states in 1973 and signing to the Muse label. Mark recorded a total of 23 albums for the Muse and HighNote labels and was the recipient of the 1996, 1997, 2000, and 2001 Down Beat magazine readers jazz poll for Best Male Vocalist of the Year. Murphy continued to tour internationally into his 80s before passing away in 2015 leaving behind a long list of ardent supporters and admiring musicians and singers.

This week’s top tune was released on Mark’s 1979 album Mark Murphy Sings Mostly Dorothy Fields and Cy Coleman for the Audiophile label. The track features the Loonis McGlohon Trio and can be heard in a killer scene in Robert Schwartzman‘s excellent directorial debut film, Dreamland (streaming now on Netflix).

Schwartzman, best known as the frontman of the band Rooney, adds serious filmmaker chops to his resume in a well-crafted, well acted gem of a film. Nods to the extended Coppola/Schwartzman family pepper the project, brother Jason and mother Talia Shire play supporting roles to stellar lead performances by Johnny Simmons, Amy Landecker, and Beverly D’Angelo in a Graduate-style coming-of-age tale. Not to be missed!

Sam Phillips – Troubles Won’t Stay

(click song title above to listen)

New music from Sam Phillips is 100% just-what-the-doctor ordered about now! We’re so excited to bring you “Troubles Won’t Stay” as this week’s top tune from Sam’s new eight song mini-album Human Contact Is Never Easy.

With Phillips stalwarts Jay Bellerose on drums, Jennifer Condos on bass, Eric Gorfain on guitar, keys, string arrangements, violin, and Richard Dodd on cello, Sam tackles themes of hope, love, and faith in a way that leaves us with a healthy dose of all three. The collection comprises four brand new songs produced by Sam, two never-before-released live versions of “Reflecting Light” and “If I Could Write” from the upcoming concert film, Live at Largo at the Coronet and two favorites from Push Any Button.

Sam sat down with Vox recently to discuss her busy year composing the score for the massive upcoming Gilmore Girls revival, A Year In the Life. Four new 90 minute episodes of the iconic show will premiere on Netflix just after Midnight this Friday November 25th!

Phillips maintains that “putting music to picture, when done right, is one of the more powerful mediums. Because you have writing, acting, visuals, and music all supporting each other. And the role of art” she says, “is to move us, to inspire us, and to mean something”. Legions of “La-La’s” fans all over the world tuning in to Netflix at 12:01AM on Friday will be attesting to that!
