Big City

Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 38

Ernestine Anderson at the height of her powers – caught during a very successful run at Concord Records, where she was easily one of the hippest things going down at the time! The group here is a trio, and very tight – Hank Jones on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Jeff Hamilton on drums – all shifting easily to fit the mood and personal demeanor of Anderson's performance, which is a fair bit more dynamic than other jazz singers of the period. In a way, the record's got a similar feel to Lorez Alexandria's albums from the time – hip soul jazz vocals at its best, with just the right twists, turns, and rhythmic impulses to keep things interesting – but not enough to goof things up too much! Titles include "Big City", "Welcome To The Club", "All Blues", "All I Need Is You", "Spring Is Here", and "I'll Never Pass This Way Again".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A mighty nice setting for Carmen McRae, and a bit different than usual too – especially given that the backing group is a pretty soulful tenor/organ combo!

Look Of Love
Philips, 1967. Very Good+
Prime late 60s work from Dusty Springfield – an excellent American album that compiles some of her best singles from the UK!

Solitude
Verve, 1952. Near Mint-

Fitzgerald & Pass – Again
Pablo, 1976. Near Mint-
Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass return to the studio just a few years after their initial meeting – once again to work in a stripped-down duet format that's completely sublime!

A date that has White singing with some really moody backings from Hal Mooney – a mix of jazz instrumentation and fuller strings – all served up with a real sensitivity for some of the darker moments in the tunes.
