In the ’60s the jazz pianist Bill Evans would occasionally record an orchestral “easy listening” session to pay the bills, with predictably mediocre results. But FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, while certainly easy on the ears, is also one of Evans’ most intriguing “lost” records, brought to us courtesy of Verve’s winning “By Request” series.

The New York-born disco band Crown Heights Affair is best known for their Top Five R&B/Top 40 pop hit “Dreaming a Dream.” On Dream World,the group combined the optimistic tone of that smash with a slightly heavier funk tone; though their trademark horn sound is still in tact, “Galaxy of Love” is a fun, brassy romp that retains some of the frothy flavor of “Dreaming” and was a Top Five hit in the U.K. The huge club hit “Say a Prayer for Two” has gospel-ish lead vocals, a driving bass similar to Brass Construction’s “Movin,” and charted number 41 R&B in the fall of 1978.
