Nancy Kelly "Remembering Mark Murphy" Release: "People often ask me who my favorite singer is, and my answer is always, without hesitation, Mark Murphy. With Mark's passing, I was moved to honor him musically with this recording. It was early in my singing career that a friend turned me on to Mark. Most of the songs chosen for this recording were ones that influenced or moved me to become a jazz singer. Some are are now iconic Mark Murphy, to be forever associated with him. When John di Martino and I developed the material, we agreed to keep the integrity of some of these, while I joyfully took liberties with others. Randy Brecker joined us on "Red Clay," "Vera Cruz" and "Body and Soul," all tracks he played on Mark's original recordings of these tracks.
