CD Reviews

Excellent overview of 20's jazz singer

(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the few listenable singers from the 20's, has a highly appealing and swinging style which puts her in the same category as Ethel Eaters in the 20's. Some excellent jazz singing with excellent jazz musicians bacing her(The Dorsy Brothere, Manny Klein, Joe Venuti, Bunny Berrigan, exe...)"
Annette Hanshaw: An Underrated Talent!

"Annette Hanshaw was an important artist of the 20s and 30s. She is as much of that era as Ruth Etting, Helen Kane, and The Boswell Sisters. Annette had an extremely plaintive voice but she was certainly not a sugary sweet singer. On this CD are a few songs in which she does an uncanny Helen Kane impersonation.
I am fond of Helen Kane, but let Helen be Helen and let Annette sing like herself. There are many gems on this CD not available on other compilations such as "It All Depends on You", "My Blackbirds are Bluebirds Now", "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". There is a blues feeling with "Big City Blues" and "My Sin". Annette's rendition of "Button Up Your Overcoat" is on an equal par with Ruth Etting's version which is better known. This is a CD well worth having and it includes many songs from early talkies of 1929. I am so glad to have discovered this CD which has excellent sound quality. My favourite, if I had to choose one, would be "Say It Isn't So" which is poignant and heartfelt. Annette Hanshaw's music is a delight and I am grateful for the legacy that she left behind in a career that seems to have been too brief."
