Ralph Sharon Sextet - Mr. And Mrs. Jazz

Mr & Mrs Jazz — and their cool cousins too – given that the combo also features some sublime tenor sax from JR Monterose, in addition to vocals from Sue and piano from Ralph! The set's a much harder-edged date than you might guess from the cover — and Sharon's approach to arrangements is a bit more dynamic than later work with Tony Bennett — swinging in a cool Bethlehem way, but given a great punch from the instrumentation — which also includes vibes from Eddie Costa and guitar from Joe Puma ! Sue Sharon's a pretty nice singer, and appears on about half the tracks the others are instrumentals...
