Album Notes
Myrna Lake is one of the best old-school singers left who you can still hear today. Her unique vocal style will never leave anyone untouched or indifferent...
Bassist Ruslan Khain brought brilliant musicians into the studio. Guitarist Andrei Ryabov, pianist Roman Ivanoff, saxophonist Yaron Elyashiv and drummer Will Terrill are outstanding musicians on the New York City scene today. On three tracks of this CD you can hear strings by violinist/violist Efrat Shapira. Enjoy the sounds of \"Yesterdays\" with Myrna Lake today!

amazing and wonderful !!!
myrna is a revelation !!! to hear her is always a peak experience--- she is bar none the greatest singer & interpreter fo these great tunes ive ever heard live- she is in ellas class as far as i`m concerned--her singing phrasing emotional deliverance & always w a shining brilliant intelligence is a rare and singular treat --- her scat singign is up there w ella and louis- this great lady of song--her prodigious talent - its a national treasure !!!!! we who have had the all too short pleasure of hearing her regularly at smalls on sundays -until recent health problems---we miss her soo much-- and send her our very best wishes and prayers for a quick recovery and return to her great sunday night and sorely missed gigs !!!!! come back myrna !!!!


Soul personified.
I'm puzzled by the first number (an instrumental), but when Myrna starts singing on the 2nd track (and I'd never even heard of her), you sense someone who, besides the obvious talent, sings with great feeling--sensitivity, emotion, passion even. Today most singers simply rely on a pose or a sweet (or cool-sounding) voice. Not this singer. She risks it all, adapting her voice to the material and drawing all of the emotion out of each song. She cooks like Coleman Hawkins on "Man I Love," and her gut-wrenching passionate reading of "Nearness of You" puts that "other" singer's recent recording of the Carmichael standard to shame.
