LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Mark Murphy Format: Vinyl. Wow, jazz vocals don't get any better than this. Whether joyously wailing an uptempo tune like Jump for Joy, or stepping slowly through a gem of a ballad such as My Ship Has Sailed, it's hard not to mourn the passing of Mark Murphy in 2015. I can't think of any other jazz singer who compares to this lyricism, imaginative jazz phrasing, and a great natural range.

Great album, but collectors beware. This can be recognized only by looking at the runout data. Original should have SB prefix and repress is using MPS prefix. Soundwise this 2000 issue is as great as the original. Not a cheap repress but high quality job in every way.
