Ready for another contest? Click here and listen to a mystery track on my Vox blog.
The first person to correctly name that singer – in the comments section here – will win a prize. (Only one guess per person, please.)
That prize is a new CD featuring Miles Davis in his boppish prime, alongside John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans and other all-stars. The “Broadcast Sessions” album contains performances recorded for radio in 1958 and 1959. (Click here to hear one of those tracks.)
UPDATE (02/04/09): Well, no winner this time. Contest is over. The song is called “Miles,” and the singer is Frank Holder, an esteemed jazz vocalist in the U.K.
Holder also used to be a Calypsonian. He was born in Guyana.
