The amount of jazz albums we recommend is not commensurate to how much we love the genre. But there’s one advantage to that oversight: we can always recommend the most bomb-ass jazz albums. I’m partial to the swingy groove of Somethin’ Else, but some may prefer the delicate piano of Love For Sale. I certainly can’t fault you for that, because all six of the songs on this album are pretty great. I imagine this made quite the atmosphere for socialites to enjoy at swanky late-50s parties. It works well for the holiday season, too!
