CD Reviews

Duke Ellington's finest vocalist...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"She was the opitome of style and class, her voice is sophistocated yet swingin'. Ivie Anderson was the best canarie that ever perched with Ellington's great orchestra. Her wordless vocalizing on "It Don't Mean A Thing" was someting new for the 30's. And her highly enjoyable version of "All God's Chillin' Got Rhythm" shows off her rhythmic phrasing. It is an absolute joy to hear her highly appealing voice. This CD is recommeded."
Without a doubt, Ellington's greatest vocalist

"Saying that Ivie anderson was Ellignton's greatest vocalist is saying a lot, just think of all the great singer who were with his band Herb Jeffries, Betty Roche, Adelaide Hall & Al Hibbler. But it's true that I've was the greatest, and most unique. She didn't sound "black" whatever that means. I mean she sounded similar in elegance as Conne Boswell, Lee Wiley or Milded Bailey. However Ivie swing hard, and could sing so calm, cool and colelctively. My favorite is Oh Babe Mayne Someday. All the songs on this cd are exellent and feature Ellingtonians as backup. These are without a doubt some of the greatest sessions to come out of the 1930's. Ivie was a unique person, and always wore white silk gowns whiel perfoeming, looking glamorous and angelicly elegant and femme fatale all at one, which is the image you get when you hear her devine and colelctive voice. No singer has been coller then her."
