Bistro Ballads


Audrey Morris - Bistro Ballads I reviewed The Voice of Audrey Morris four years ago. At the time I complained about her album Bistro Ballads not being found at a reasonable price. Now both albums have been combined in a release from Fresh Sound Records. Bistro Ballads is great album of standards. Audrey Morris was a pianist who sounded a bit like Jeri Southern. Her version of Come in Out of the Rain is haunting. When I heard it on youtube before I bought this I was astounded. My favorite version of Guess who I saw today is done by Eydie Gorme but Audrey comes in a close second. This only has piano, bass, and cymbals. It feels like you are in a restaurant.
