Performer: Neil Ardley. Title: Will Power A Shakespeare Birthday Celebration In Music. Genre: Jazz. The late Neil Ardley's two pieces are a fragile vocal dialogue with lyrical supporting reeds, and a mix of faintly dated-sounding sound-poetry and free-improv - the second one leaving the singers rather high and dry.

In my top 98th percentile of my entire 10,400+ jazz unit is that good. I'm not biased i'm not selling it . ""Shall I Compare thee" is one beautiful song. I feel like sobbing with joy from this recording.
Great LP. underrated. Shall I compare thee is sublime, Norma Winstone has never sounded better. Similar in Vive to Symphony of Amaranths and greek variations etc.
