Cybill Shepherd, Model, Actress, Jazz Singer!
Cybill gained attention as America’s Top Model, then went into movies, (Last Picture Show, Daisy Miller, Taxi Driver, to name a few), almost 40 films to date, plus the highly successful TV show “Moonlighting” which launched co-star Bruce Willis.
Shepherd is also a fine singer of popular ballads surrounding herself with some of the best players around. A native of Memphis, she carries that city’s great musical ‘vibes’ in her genes.
Here’s a treasure from the past, a recording originally released in 1978 by Inner City Records, a label which received the first place award for being the “best jazz label in the world” in 1979, by the Downbeat International Critic’s Award. This album of standards features tenor saxophonist Stan Getz, trombonist Frank Rosolino and a band of similar all-stars.
