I myself was smittened by "Lush Life" by Hartman (vo.) and Coltrane played tonight.
I turned the radio on at around quarter to ten, then heard a male voice singing a Jazz standard. I wondered if I changed the station by mistake, came back to the radio to make sure the channel. That was 105.9. Anyway the song and his voice sooooo good, found the album and ordered it almost impusively : )

Jonathan and Hope,
Did two of you find the song/album?
the song title is "Pra Dizer Adeus (Time To Say Goodbye)". The album title is 'Imagina: Songs of Brasil' by Karrin Allyson.

I would love to know what recording was played last night and if I could get a copy. It is a beautifully heartbreaking song and I can't find enough info about it and the composer who died. please help
