CD Reviews

A voice as sweet as honey....
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A true jazz singer, of course these are her early recordings when her voice was as sweet as honey(Helen Forrest was heavily influenced by Miss Hall) and every track is something to be savored especially her scatting on the jazz vocal masterpiece "Chreole Love Call" This CD is highly recommended to jazz vocal collectors, and historians."
Adelaide is a real crooning blackbird... a jazzy one too...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Her voice is sweet and full of a jazz feeling, her phrasing crisp clear and smooth. She made Ellington's Creole Love Call a classic with her wordless scatting thoughout the song. Miss Adelaide Hill is on the same level as the legendary Ethel Waters, Annette Hanshaw and Conne Boswell. This cd is aperfect introduction to this jazz song stylist. Recommended to jazz vocal fans and jazz historians alike."
Adelaide is a joy to hear
(5 out of 5 stars)

"an underrated jazz singer from harlem(one of the first popular singers accepted by both blacks and whites during the 20's & 30's) who had a unique and clear way of phrasing, she was also a wonderful scat singer and had a way with a ballad. Her only cometitors of her fday were the legendary Ethel Waters and Annette Hanshaw, which she could hold her own against. Just buy the cd. you'll be gad ya did"
