Happy Release Day! Columbia Records brings you the latest from Bob Dylan, his first triple album. “Because as Frank Sinatra and Chet Baker and countless others knew, the concise songs of the Songbook era are magical self-renewing energy systems. In the space of just 32 measures, less than a minute, they lay out an idea or narrative, develop it, take it into a different tonality for the new perpective, and return home in a way that makes listeners want to take the ride again” – NPR.
Featuring classics by composers Cy Coleman (“The Best is Yet To Come“), Hoagy Carmichael (“Stardust”), Harold Arlen (“Stormy Weather”), Triplicate moves with great reverence and Dylan sings these at close range and at human scale. Read more HERE!

Ella Fitzgerald and the great guitar virtuoso Joe Pass recorded four albums together toward the end of Fitzgerald’s career and appear together on the album of this week’s title track. The studio orchestra Nelson Riddle assembled for this 1982 set also included such superb musicians as Tommy Tedesco (guitar), Shelly Manne (drums), Al Aarons (trumpet) and Jimmy Rowles (piano) and won Ella the 1984 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. It was one of three Grammys she won for her work with Riddle.
The tune of course is the classic by Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, the pair of Great American Songbook writers whose marvelous, witty, and sophisticated output also included Witchcraft, I’ve Got Your Number, I Walk A Little Faster, and Hey Look Me Over just to name a few.
Come the day your mine
I’m gonna teach you to fly
We’ve only tasted the wine
We’re gonna drain that cup dry!
