The glorious Irene Kral

While making a vegan meatloaf (yes an oxymoron) this afternoon I rediscovered a great album : Irene Kral's "Where is Love"...beautiful from start to finish. Only her very precise rich vocals and Alan Broadbent's sensitive and spare accompaniment on piano...I remembered how great this album is...particularly the gorgeous "When I Look in Your Eyes" an overlooked love song and Bob Dorough's "Love Came on Stealthy Fingers"...not a drop of music is wasted. She sadly passed away in 1978 at the age of 46 from breast cancer. This recording is proof you can wring emotion from every note without over the top vocalising a la Celine Dion.
