New Lorez AlexandriaSing No Sad Songs For Me ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
An amazing album by Lorez Alexandria – probably our favorite-ever work by her! The record features arrangements by Riley Hampton, the Chicago soul genius who did work for a number of the city's best artists – most notably Walter Jackson – and his mixture of soul, strings, and jazz works perfectly for Lorez's amazing voice. The whole thing's incredibly dark – and even the joyous moments of the record seem tinged with a sadness that threatens to break through at any time. This sadness isn't cliched – as on the dozens of post-Billie Holiday albums that reached for a fake tearful sense of authenticity; it's a mature emotive expression by one of the 20th Century's greatest jazz singers. Titles include "A Loser's Lullaby", "Gloomy Sunday", "All My Love", "Who", and "Sing No Sad Songs For Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing, with deep groove. Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on one track. Cover has some wear, some stains, a bit of seam splitting, and the remnants of a sticker.)
