Good Annie Ross swinger...
Classic Jazz Fan | 11/10/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Here is Annie Ross with a small jazz combo swingin', as she should be. Here she covers some jazz standards and some torch songs. This CD is an exact re-issie of the lp from the early 50's. Though not on the same level as her great LP "Sings A Song With Mulligan" which at present isn't available on CD, it's the next best thing. At least we have almost all of her recordings with Lambert, Hendricks & Ross in print(accept "Sing Along with Basie). Recomended."
A great small group jazz date with Annie Ross

"Annie sounds great here interacting with small jazz groups, she sings Skylark and a few other standards. Fans of teh great singer will enjoy this wonderfu ljazz set. Although Ross mostly plays it straight here(unlike her more adventurous work with Lambert, Hendricks & Ross), she does improvise lightly. You wil lenjoy this, Ross never recoreded anything bad back in the 60's/60's. Though don't expect any vocalese here."
An excellent find.

"Recordings by Annie Ross on her own are hard to find but when they are unearthed they are real gems. This one, recorded in 1952 is quite unpretentious and simply good jazz singing. Her voice has just a hint of the roughness that sometimes characterises female jazz singers and this plus her phrasing and sense of the song makes for an excellent recording."
