Close Enough for Jazz

As the hours of daylight decrease I tend to fill the house with candlelight and jazz. I guess they make me feel warmer (that, and I broke down on Monday and turned the heat on way before my arbitrarily determined November 1 start date). I have found some terrific new-to-me singers and albums in order to fill my soul with the warmth of smoky jazz songs,

Ann Hampton Callaway, Erin Bode (who is not smoky, but beautifully clear) and NPR’s The New Jazz Divas, plus some “old” favorites Diana Krall and Jane Monheit.
