Jazz 'Round Midnight: Arthur Prysock

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Cook

Highlights include excellent renditions of "Little Girl Blue," "I'll Be Around," and "I Don't Stand A Ghost of a Chance," in addition to rarely recorded gems such as "How Did She Look" and "Only for You." For jazz vocal fans who frown upon the lush, more pop oriented end of the genre, this title is not for you. If you like the kind of stylized "bedroom soul" and jazz vocals Billy Eckstine, Johnny Hartman, and even Barry White, to some extent, excelled at, then this Prysock collection is a great buy.
