ones that I happen to spin a lot on the shows. La Lucha's "The Way You Look Tonight" is simply stunning, reharmonized but with reverence for the melody and lyrics, and profound performances from both vocalist Jun and pianist John C. O'Leary III. You may not have heard of them, but I consider this an essential recording. Diana Krall's "I'm Not In Love" also shows respect for the original recording by 70's band 10cc, but with modern emotion and a breathtaking production. Hardly jazz... but great music! It's hard to pick just one cut from Annie Lennox's "Nostalgia" album, but her heart-on-sleeve crooning for "You Belong to Me" is gripping and the arrangement is fresh & lush; this album also wonderfully recorded. Ah - I just realized these are all love songs. Always a plus! Enjoy!! - Kendo
