Here is the long awaited vinyl reissue of the debut masterpiece of Jeanne Lee and Ran Blake. Produced by "Third Stream" genius Gunther Schuller and originally released in 1961 "The Newest Sound Around" stands as one of the most original and creative vocal-piano duet albums in Jazz history. This is deep, intimate and atmospheric music that naturally flows through transformed jazz standards, mournful gospels and highly imaginative originals. It's time to rediscover Jeanne Lee's enchanting voice and Ran Blake's unique piano style and this is the right album to start with.
"Full of love, care, and humanity. They always dance through melodies with devotion and intelligence, and the feeling of their music is always intimate" - Danilo Pérez
