Overview

This edition of Verve's For Lovers series combines 11 classic themes of amoré and travel, featuring such legendary jazz vocalists as Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan, Blossom Dearie, Arthur Prysock, Carmen McRae, and Brazilian pop/jazz chanteuse Astrud Gilberto. The remaining tracks are instrumental versions of "Corcovado" (Antonio Carlos Jobim) "Dear Old Stockholm" (Stan Getz and Chet Baker), and "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans?" (Pete Fountain). While the majority of these previously released songs are vintage cuts from the '50s and 60s, tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson's version of "Isfahan" was recorded in 1991. Around the World for Lovers successfully fulfills the promise of the title at a mid-line price.
