Etta Jones
All the Way

Grammy Nominee Etta Jones stepped in front of the microphone again with a batch of tunes by the American songsmith Sammy Cahn under her arm. Along with her long-time friend and collaborator, Houston Person, Etta is backed by the sensitive piano of Norman Simmons, the guitar of Russell Malone and, adding a unique spectrum of color to the record, Tom Aalfs on violin and Steve Turre on trombone. Of course, the most popular songs by "King Cahn" are here, including "Until the Real Thing Comes Along", "It's Magic" and "All the Way". Etta also offers the rarely-heard "Put 'em in a Box" and "Saturday Night is the Loneliest Night of the Week", a tune which once flooded the airwaves but now, inexplicably, is heard only occasionally. You haven't heard the Sammy Cahn songbook until you've heard it according to Etta Jones?
