Album Review

Richard S. Ginell []

With the backing of a large orchestra, lush even by arranger Don Sebesky's standards, Jackie and Roy front an exquisitely recorded Creed Taylor production that mostly falls outside the idiom of jazz into a polished, jazzy, classical/easy listening plane. More to the point, the collective taste of Taylor and the Krals is incredibly rich, for they tap into a small mother lode of scintillating contemporary material that jazz people rarely touched, then or now -- like Leonard Bernstein's beguiling ''A Simple Song'' (from Mass) or Michel Colombier's ''We Could Be Flying'' (the high point of his Wings pop symphony). Sebesky's arrangements burrow deeply into his classical sources, whether juxtaposing Bach's ''Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring'' on top of the title cut or dovetailing Debussy's ''Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun'' into Jerome Moross' ''Lazy Afternoon''; Villa-Lobos' ''Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5'' is a perfect choice for a genre-fusing vocalese by Jackie. Paul Desmond pokes his quizzical head into the Brubeck/Gershwin medley ''Summer Song/Summertime'' -- who better than old Paul? -- and Hubert Laws enhances the Bernstein and Colombier tunes. Although neither Jackie nor Roy do anything resembling jazz singing here, forget about categories; this is gorgeous music that cannot be shackled to one genre.

Jackie And Roy's Biography

Scott Yanow []

Singer Jackie Cain (born May 22, 1928, Milwaukee, WI) and singer/pianist Roy Kral (born October 10, 1921, Chicago, IL) first joined forces in 1946, and in 1996 they celebrated their 50th anniversary as a vocal duo. Jackie & Roy were with Charlie Ventura's band during 1948-1949 (which gave them a great deal of recognition); Lou Stein's ''East of Suez'' was an unusual feature for their voices. Shortly after leaving Ventura in June 1949, they were married and worked together on a regular basis ever since. Jackie & Roy had their own television show in Chicago in the early '50s, worked in Las Vegas during 1957-1960, settled in New York in 1963, and appeared on some television commercials. They recorded many spirited jazz performances for a variety of labels through the decades, and performed into the 2000s until Kral's death in August 2002. Roy was the brother of singer Irene Kral.
