The track “Somebody Come and Play” from the Choi-Sacks Duo is the featured track today at Jazz.com. Along the way the album gets a very nice review from jazz writer Ted Gioia. A highlight:

I wish more singers would take chances like this, or bring along a pianist who, like Sacks, is such a daring accompanist. These two really go at it. I can’t recall the last time I heard a vocal recording in which the pianist challenged the singer so aggressively — and with such felicitous results.

You should also come out and play . . . play this CD, I mean. This small label release is one you might easily miss. But that would be a shame. This is one of the best jazz vocal CDs of the year.
