Me too, brother.
I did end up getting Waltz for Debbie which has Bill Evans and Monica Zetterlund. This version came out in 1964 and the one cited by KingStyles in 1961. I probably will have both versions at some point.
Another excellent album is Waltz for Koop, modern, kind of trippy, funky but excellent
"Koop means co-operation. And apart from the core duo of composers / arrangers / producers Magnus Zingmark and Oscar Simonsson with their wide range of collaborators, what's really co-operating in Koop’s music is the sixties vocaljazz-magic of Swedish icon Monica Zetterlund with a producer-focused 2001"

A new version of an old favorite. Same artists in same amazing venue, but with a much deeper, heavier male choral sound (the previous release, which is also GREAT, has a much airier female choral sound), which makes for a weightier version that stands on its own. Just like everything Savall / Alia Vox does, the quality of sound and recording are peerless. Don't go here if you don't like Early Music, needless to say:
Finally Adams in a more simple, acoustic arrangement hearkening back to Heartbreaker, though his is a bit slower and more sedate, but I like it a lot, so far:
This one's been growing on me - A Daniel Lanois project; Black Dub. The lead singer, Trixie Whitley, is the daughter of another talented artist that I went to high school with, Chris Whitley (RIP) is great. You can definitely hear Lanois's hand in this, but it is entirely unique from anything else he's done:
Chris's stuff is great too. My favorite:
Also growing on me - talented indie with a widely diverse and prolific release from 2004 - David Garza
Diane Schuur, CD " The Gathering ". Its 10 country tear jerkers sung by a Jazz singer. If the tear jerkers are to much for you, tracks 2 and 6 are a little up beat with a touch of funk. I think you will like it, she has a fine voice.
