Amazon.co.uk

Jimmy McHugh has been as much a part of American popular song as George Gershwin and Cole Porter. In Let's Get Lost, New-Orleans-born trumpeter Terence Blanchard delivers fresh renditions of McHugh's songs with four of the brightest singers on the scene. The cool Canadian chanteuse Diana Krall tickles the title track with her Shirley-Horn-like vocals and pianisms, while Jane Monheit graces the ballad "Too Young to Go Steady" and the bouncy "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" with her quiet-storm phrasing. Dianne Reeves's powerful voice imbues "I Can't Believe You're in Love with Me" and the midtempo "Can't Get Out of This Mood" with new emotional colours. Cassandra Wilson's down-South delivery transforms "Don't Blame Me" and "Sunny Side of the Street" into slow-drag and tango-tinged numbers. Blanchard's instrumental versions of "You're a Sweetheart" and "Lost in a Fog" with the tenor saxophonist Brice Winston are lyrical in their own jazzy ways. --Eugene Holley Jr.

Format: Audio CD
This is an exquisite album, which showcases Blanchard's subtle and lyrical trumpet playing and contrasts the different approach of four female vocalists. For all the vocal talent on display, I have to say that the outstanding track is "Too Young too go Steady" which newcomer Jane Monheit invests with a dreamy, evocative romanticism. She really does justice to the beautiful melody. After hearing this, Coltrane's famous version was on my mind for days afterwards. She can also handle up tempo ballads too, (which there weren't many of on her recent solo efforts) listen closely to "I can't give you anything but love" in which her distinctive phrasing glides over and around the melody.
Wlsewhere, Dianne Reeves seems to be impersonating Sarah Vaughan, no mean feat, admittedly, her versions of "I'm in the mood for love" and "Can't get out of this mood" are both excellent, and she handles the intricate emotionalities well.
Cassandra Wilson, of whom not much has been heard since her outstanding "Travelling Miles", stamps her own unique vocal interpretations on "Don't blame me" which turns into a bluesy, moody exploration. Whilst on "Sunny side of the Street" she seems to be paying a conscious tribute to Satchmo, as I can hear distinct echoes of his growl in her vocals.
Blanchard's intrumental tracks are excellent, with "Lost in a fog" and "You're a sweetheart"
the two most impressive tracks.
I have to say that I prefer his playing to Wynton Marsalis, who sounds positively stale by comparison. Blanchard is a gifted musician on the evidence of this album, and an accomplished arranger.

The interesting thing about this record is that the leader's trumpet is not the most rewarding aspect of this disc, his tone being too burnished for my taste. Certainly, the instrumental tracks as less enjoyable than those where the group is graced with the prescence of the singers.
The best tracks feature Dianne Reeves and Cassandra Wilson, "On the sunny side of the street" being completely reinvented by the latter. Jane Monheit's "Too young to go steady " is also a stand out track.
In summary, I was astounded at just how many great tunes Jimmy McHugh composed and his compositions truly make a great set. My only reservations stem from the fact that this is one of the most conservative records I have obtained in a long while and one wonders what a more adventurous musician than Blanchard would have made with these encounters with today's greatest singers.

JUST ABOUT PERFECT 4 July 2001
By MOVIE MAVEN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is really strange: within two days of buying this album which is called LET'S GET LOST (The Songs of Jimmy McHugh) I inadvertently picked up an album by a favorite vocalist named Weslia Whitfield which is called LET'S GET LOST (The Songs of Jimmy McHugh). There is no contest and comparisons are odious. Both albums get the highest of marks.
I'd never heard Blanchard before and, frankly, bought the album because it features three singers I'm quite fond of and one (Jane Monheit) I'd wanted to hear since friends spoke admiringly of her work. Diana Krall's single track, the title song, is dizzyingly beautiful: her sexy whisper of a voice is perfectly complimented by Blanchard's wonderful trumpet work. In fact, Blanchard shines on every track, a few of which I simply had to listen to 3 and 4 times: this is some of the best jazz I've ever heard.
I'm especially fond of Cassandra Wilson and Blanchard's version of "On The Sunny Side of The Street" which is completely different from any one I've ever heard before. "Lost In A Fog" is new to me and is really memorable in this long, cool arrangement for trumpet, piano, bass, drums & tenor sax.
But it's the entire album, this collection of eleven themes and jazz variations, that is just about perfect. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Very nice CD of jazzy standards. 22 July 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Terence Blanchard plays a soft muted trumpet on Let's Get Lost. He has recorded some great standards (all the songs were written by Jimmy McHugh.),some you will recognize, others you will not. However, every song is a gem. Blanchard has surrounded himself with female guest vocalists (Diana Krall, Cassandra Wilson, Diana Reeves, and Jane Monheit) for the vocal tracks. Each vocalist adds her flavor to her particular song, however the CD flows seamlessly and does not have the feel of a compilation. In addition, the instrumental tracks are all wonderful jazz recordings. Blanchard has steered away from his usual hard bebop styling to deliver a smooth jazz CD of standards. If you like standards, this CD is not to be missed.

Delightful 13 Mar. 2002
By MarvelousMarla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a wonderful tribute to Mr. Jimmy McHugh as Blanchard teams up with four very distinct female voices -- Diana Krall, Jane Monheit, Diane Reeves and my favorite singer of all time Cassandra Wilson. Though the ladies are very good on their contributions, my favorite track is an instrumental "You're a sweetheart."
Terence Blanchard is Spike Lee's former musical director, and I've been fond of Blanchard's work since he did the score X back in '93 ( I think). That was my intro to his aesthetic, and he never fails to impress me with his workmanship. His music manages to exude popular appeal while maintaining artistic integrity -- unlike most of what you hear on these smooth jazz stations.
Of the vocal selections, my favorites are the title track sung beautifully by Diana Krall, "The Sunny Side of the Street," which Ms. Wilson slows down to low simmer and the playful "I Can't Give You Anything but Love," done by Jane Monheit. I dig Dianne Reeves too on "Can't Get out of This Mood."
This music is lush, mellow and atmospheric -- whenever I play this CD I feel like I'm in some jazz lounge. This is an excellent CD.

Blanchard's new album is absolutely beautiful. 18 Jun. 2001
By David Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Terence Blanchard has created another great album. He continues to show why he is one of the greatest trumpeters of the last 20 years. On this album he is backed by his regular group, with four singers taking turns on seven of the eleven Jimmy MgHugh tunes.
The most remarkable thing about this album is how Blanchard takes the tunes, which are normally faster swing tunes, and gives them a very laid-back mood, almost making them seem ominous. This may sound strange, but it all works out beautifully in the end.A second very cool thing is how well the group works together. Pianist Ed Simon, bassist Derek Nievergelt and drummer Eric Harland keep the mood and tone perfectly throughout each song. The addition of Terence Blanchard's inventive tenor man Bruce Winston, who plays on a few cuts, makes the album that much more enjoyable.
Overall, "Let's Get Lost" is a brilliano album. Terence Blanchard's unique and instantly identifiable trumpet and the sweet voices of Diana Krall, Jane Monheit, Dianne Reeves and Cassandra Wilson make this my favorite album of the year so far.

One word to describe this CD "Sweet" 31 May 2004
By MR WT MAKHATHINI - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The reason i bought this CD is because it features my favourate vocalist Diane Reeves but when hearing what a wonderful Trumpeter Mr Blanchad is I was speechless.The CD opens win with marvelous rendition 'lets get lost' with Diana Krall on vocals & as usually known she never fails to impress whether u like her voice or not She is gonna be here in this world of Jazz for a long time to come.The show stopper for me is "too young to get steady" with Jane Monheit on vocals how! what a sweet voice with Blanchad swaying & swerving his trumpet so soulfully. "You are a sweetheart" is the best instrumental song for me & "Lost in a fog a 9 min. plus track will take u from your living room to some other place u have never been.Now Diane Reeves adds a wonderful rendition on " I cant believe you are in love with me" she is also very convincing on "Cant get out of this mood" like as if she is acting u hear the voice of a person who is really into something she really cant believe why cant it stop.Ms Wilson has a surprisingly baritone & yet feminine voice i was very surprised on "dont blame me". The supporting cast is very good esp. the bass,tenor sax & drums.Overall this CD is a MUST HAVE as ALL songs are beautiful.Its very funny that I have never actualy been attracted to the trumpet as an instrument(with exception to Miles Davis) but after hearing this CD I have definately changed my mind. This CD appeals to R&B, jazz,Soul fans as it is delivered not really in the traditional jazz settings but relaxed mood jazz.one reviewer is concerned about this CD being "watered down jazz compared to Blanchad previous works" if I may say. My replication to that is, not everyone likes "traditional jazz" i.e hardcore renditions. As time goes by we need someone to bring new life to these "standards" songs & that person in this case is none other than Terence Blanchad if U wanna enjoy this CD thouroghly ,play it in the late evenings or early mornings when the noise from the streets is less. Go on & invest on this CD you won't be disappointed.
