Roberta Gambarini and Hank Jones, Lush Life (55 Records). With a new collaboration of the Italian singer and the American pianist about to be released, it is past time to tell you about this one. Gambarini and Jones are all but flawless in this collection of classic songs and two jazz standards, Gigi Gryce’s “Reminiscing” and Tadd Dameron’s “Cool Breeze.” Highlights of the duets: a spirited “Just Squeeze Me” and a gorgeous “Then I’ll Be Tired Of You” that includes the seldom-heard verse. Four tracks add bassist George Mraz and drummer Willie Jones III. A slightly different US release of the CD, called You Are There, has only Gambarini and Jones duets.
