 Notes & Reviews
 
Please Note: CD-R Media
 
One of the early practitioners of the singing style known as 'vocalese,' British jazz singer Annie Ross is best known as one third of the highly influential singing group, Lambert Hendricks and Ross. Original lyrics put to Wardell Gray's saxophone instrumental 'Twisted' provided the fuel for one of Annie's best performances on record. Annie's version was later covered by Joni Mitchell, Bette Midler and others. Her classic 1963 audiophile album, 'A Handful of Songs,' features Ross backed by an orchestra arranged and conducted by Johnnie Spence. Highlights include an unusual and thrilling version of Cole Porter's 'Love for Sale,' perfectly capturing the magic of Annie's intuitive style. All selections newly remastered.
