I met this great girl in NYC and we went drinking for a few hours. We live thousands of miles apart. She wanted a mixtape with jazz vocals on it. So here it is. She also had other mixtape requests which I intend to honour as well. It's been a long time since I've put together a jazz mix and I've never done so with the restriction of only including jazz songs with vocals. The title is from the lyrics to the Cannonball Adderly song "Never Will I Marry" with vocals by the underappreciated Nancy Wilson.

Rene Marie's voice was a welcome distraction and a lovely discovery for my depressed and lonesome heart as I tried to forget my troubles in a Warsaw record shop. I think she's an amazing talent.

For all you hip hop trivia folks, A Tribe Called Quest sampled Minnie's crystal breaking voice from this song for their track "Lyrics to Go". I had no idea it was a human voice. Until I heard this song, I thought it was a synth tone. Anyway, this song is sex, the female version of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing". Minnie was taken from us too soon also.

This song is short but includes a reference to a foggy London Day and meeting a Stranger in the British Museum. Since I'm making a tape for someone I met pleasantly and unexpectedly while traveling, I felt like this song should make the cut. I really do like this girl, but, well you know, great distances make for a cold dish of reality. I hope she never reads this, by the way. I don't want to hope too hard.

When I discovered this was Chrissie Hynde singing this jazz standard, I was really surprised. When I give this mix to the girl I met, I wonder if she'll think I'm trying to say something to her without really saying it. I'm not even sure what I'm trying to say, so who knows? I do wish her love and happiness and all the rest. And so concludes this mix.

This is the bomb. I like this very much and it is all the better for having no Norah Jones on it. Some unusual picks which make this really special
