One of our favorite early albums from Lena Horne
– a wonderful 50s set for RCA, and one that's got some especially jazzy elements! Horne
's vocals still have that warm, famous tone – but the charts from Lennie Hayton seem to have a lot more kick than some of his other work – bringing Lena
into some upbeat, swinging modes that show a whole new side of her talents – still poised at one level, but surprisingly soulful at another! The set begins with the totally great "I'll Do Anything" – and also includes "You're The One", "It's All Right With Me", "Let Me Love You", "It's Love", "Love Is The Thing", "Call Me Darling", and "Fun To Be Fooled".
(Original black label pressing with a deep groove. Cover has a split on the top seam. Labels have some pen.)
