Jackie Cain on Piano Jazz

Feb 16, 2015

Jackie Cain and Roy Kral

  Vocalist Jackie Cain (May 22, 1928 – Sept. 15, 2014) was half of one of the best-known duos in jazz history, Jackie & Roy. She was an icon in the cabaret world, with a smooth, feathery voice. Her ability to express a full range of emotions as a performer allowed her to traverse the broad landscape of American popular song. On this 1999 edition of Piano Jazz, McPartland and bassist Dean Johnson join Cain for performances of “Wait ‘Til You See Her” and “You Don’t Know What Love Is.”
