CD Reviews

One of my all time favorite jazz vocal sets!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow this cd is an amazing reissue of the original lp, with cover artwork and everything. What a thrill it is to hear such a beautiful voice soaring over wonderfully arranged jazz orchestrations. This is one of my favorite Lorez Alexandria recordings{also check out Lorez Sings Prez and Band Swings}, she truly is a master of her art, jazz vocalizing. Listen to her the way she effortlessly scats thoughout the opening number "Just One Of Those Things", and the way she really makes you think she's a hopeless lush on a difinitive version of "Lush Life", and "Angel Eyes" is just haunting. If you enjoy 50's recordings by Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, and Ernestine Anderson, you will surely enjoy this exciting cd, no complete jazz vocal colelction should be without it. Essential music."
Without a doubt one of her finest all around sessions...

"Lorez Alexandria recorded very few sessions in the 50's and sixties, and it's a shame since she was one of the best swinging jazz singers of the period. A fine jazz and swing singer, Alexandria is backed here by a big band, which she does a wondeful job ineracting with. Alexandra swings right along and scats her way thru an amazing set, making this one of her finest all around sets. A few of the highlights include Better Luck Next Time, a haunting Lush Life, and But Beautiful. It is nice to hear alexandria backed by a swinging big band, instead of the usual small group setting. A wonderful re-issue"
Heavenly jazz singing

"This is the highlight of Miss Lorez alexandria's career, that sweet horn like voice, swinging with the orchestra. One of the high points here is when she gently and ever so smoothly scats along with the band on the opening track It Was Just One Of Those Things. She also creatively improvises on But Beautiful, and sounds wonderful on Lush Life. If you like Sarah Vaughan's Roulette sessions with Basie, you should really get this. This is some of the finest work by this much forgotten jazz legend. Don't pass this one up."
