It Runs In the Family Soundtrack by Various Artists

It runs in the family was a very well put together compositions of cool jazz tunes from some of our old favorite artist and a couple of new favorite artist. Diana Krall did an awesome rendition of You'll Never Know on track one, and Bobby Darin followed suite on track 10. Dinah Washington including her tune "Is you is or Is you ain't my baby", and if you haven't ever heard this song, now is your chance it's a classic. A little closer to date was a very contemporary jazz piece by the sensational Roy Hargrove, from his album the The RH Factor, the song is entitled "Forget Regret". Buddy Greco sings Here I am in Love, on track 7 which is one of my new favorite songs, and a smooth tune entitled "Reconciliation" written and arranged by Paul Grabowsky. The CD ended with a delightful tune also by Paul Grabowsky, but not before we were delightfully entertained with "Where or When" by Ella Fitzgerald.

This CD was a excellently arranged and produced, the songs fit together as they should to make a very nice listening CD. I would say add this to your jazz collection.
