Maria Muldaur – Sweet And Slow (1993)

Posted by Green on July 15, 2019as


Instead of veering all over the musical map as she did on earlier albums, Muldaur picks a style, sticks to it and comes up with a winner. Heavy on jazz and blues standards by the likes of Duke Ellington, Andy Razaf and Sippie Wallace, including “Gee, Baby Ain’t I Good to You” and the Billie Holiday hit “Lover Man,” the album includes one modern tune by frequent Muldaur collaborator David Nichtern. Opening with a playful “Cooking Breakfast for the One I Love,” this set benefits from pianists Mac Rebennack — also known as Dr. John — and Kenny Barron. Play this album for the one you love, at breakfast or any old time.
