Better Than Anything: LIVE, featuring Sheila Jordan (vocals), Harvie S (bass) and Alan Broadbent (piano), was captured live at Kimball’s East in Oakland in April of 1991 by San Francisco radio personality, Bud Spangler – himself a well-known jazz musician who revived these exquisite recordings shortly before his passing in 2014.
“I am so proud to have been a part of this live recording”, shares co-producer, bass player and longtime collaborator, Harvie S. “We all grooved together so effortlessly. Sheila is at her peak of creativity and prowess. Better than Anything could possibly be the most powerful musical statement of her long and distinguished career. I am thankful the broadcast was revived and I was honored to co-produce this project – the only jazz recording I know of with the instrumentation of just vocal, piano and bass.”
