CD Reviews

Sensational.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mary Ann McCall was a really great singer with a really big drug problem. That's why she never became a household name. She sang most famously with Woody Herman, and has the same kind of husky voiced, almost coarse, but wonderfully rhythmic sound as Frances Wayne, another Herman canary. This set, recorded for Savoy with a great band, has terrific cuts, like It's You or No One, Deed I Do, and ...well, the whole thing rocks. So where are her other albums? She recorded three others, and it's really crazy that they're not on CD."
A Classy Act

"What a delight! Mary Ann doesn't have a "pretty" voice, but a voice with great character, style, and swing. A jazz voice that's never forced, but has a sense of style, playful timing and a unique offhand twist on the original lyrics that makes each cut her own. I've never heard anyone else do "Shake Down The Stars", but what a great cut! It's really a shame that there isn't more product out there from the wonderful Mary Ann McCall, but then we all have this terrific album. It could be even better if they remastered some more of her catalog."
