More than a simple Rose

"Rose Murphy was the queen of the jump. It's a pity that her name is not included in popular jazz encyclopaedias. She sang with a unique and original style. Her delicious baby-voice and her piano full of swing made her records sounds like a sort of "dadaism" in jazz. She was in good company: some of the greatest jazz inventors (Satchmo, Fats Waller, Dizzy Gillespie) put humour in their shows and records. Listen to her performance of "I wanna be loved by you" and you will discover her influence in sexy singing style on the same song with Marilyn Monroe. Listen also to "I can't give you anything but love" and you will remember Ella Fitzgerald's imitation of her. But don't miss the album and enjoy her delicious rendition to "Best things in life are free". A Rose is a rose is rose is a rose. More than only a rose: a mighty Rose!"
