Ella Productions is proud to present BELIEVE IN JAZZ, the first recording with Sheila Jordan and Serge Forté Trio. On November 8th 2003, during the 75th birthday Tour, this concert was recorded by Hubert Sewer, in charge of booking at “La Ferme Asile”, nice and warmly venue situated in Sion, Switzerland.

Sheila Jordan is “one of the jazz world’s best- kept secrets- a wonderfully flexible and imaginative improviser” (Alan Ross/Blue Note).

She recorded her very first album, for Blue Note, in 1962, and was in January 2004 the recipient of the highest distinction for JazzWomen through Lil Hardin Armstrong Jazz Heritage Award ( IAJE Women’s Caucus annually honours a pioneering female jazz musician deserving of wider recognition for her artistic excellence and outstanding contributions to jazz and to the history of women in jazz).

“Sheila portrays "song" in every possible way, with the slightest bend of a note, of a word, with a pause, a look, becoming immediately the song we needed to hear, the perfect reason for our hearts to beat. “ (David Linx)

Sheila Jordan deserves to be recognise in Europe as she is everywhere else, as one of the most interesting artists, able to sing like she was a saxophonist, taking risks, scatting, and “keeping the Music alive” all around the World , to still make us all “Believe in Jazz”. --- ellaprod.com

One of the most consistently creative of all jazz singers, Sheila Jordan has a relatively small voice, but has done the maximum with her instrument. She is one of the few vocalists who can improvise logical lyrics (which often rhyme), she is a superb scat singer, and is also an emotional interpreter of ballads. Yet despite her talents, Jordan spent much of the 1960s and '70s working at a conventional day job. She studied piano when she was 11 and early on, sang vocalese in a vocal group. Jordan moved to New York in the 1950s, was married to Duke Jordan (1952-62), studied with Lennie Tristano, and worked in New York clubs. George Russell used her on an unusual recording of "You Are My Sunshine" and she became one of the few singers to lead her own Blue Note album (1962). However, it would be a decade before she appeared on records again, working with Carla Bley, Roswell Rudd, and co-leading a group with Steve Kuhn in the late '70s. Jordan recorded a memorable duet album with bassist Arild Andersen for SteepleChase in 1977, and has since teamed up with bassist Harvie Swartz on many occasions. By the 1980s, Sheila Jordan was finally performing jazz on a full-time basis and gaining the recognition she deserved 20 years earlier. She recorded as a leader (in addition to the Blue Note session) for East Wind, Grapevine, SteepleChase, Palo Alto, Blackhawk, and Muse, resurfacing in 1999 with Jazz Child. ---Scott Yanow, Rovi

Although sparsely recorded during much of her career, Sheila Jordan has been one of the top jazz singers since 1960. In addition to living the words she sings (a la Billie Holiday), Jordan constantly improvises (few can scat with her sensitivity and swing) and also has the remarkable ability of being able to make up lyrics on the spot that are not only logical but rhyme. Jordan realized a lifelong dream on this Muse CD for she had always wanted to record with a string quartet. Fortunately the group was given colorful arrangements by pianist Alan Broadbent; in addition there are two songs with a standard trio that includes Jordan's longtime bassist Harvie Swartz and a duet with Broadbent. The emphasis is on ballads but typically Sheila Jordan makes each of the songs sound like they must have been written specifically for her, even "Look for the Silver Lining" and "Inch Worm." This is a highly recommended gem. ---Scott Yanow, Rovi
