The following are some highlights of what has been a long and illustrious career in jazz: Annie Ross is one of the pioneers of vocalese and the composer of "Twisted", one of the most well known examples of that art, as well as "Farmers Market", "Jackie" and many others. A founding member of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, considered the greatest jazz vocal ensemble of all time, her influence is present in all subsequent practitioners of vocalese

Vocalese (1952 - 1961)

Read "Vocalese (1952 - 1961)" reviewed by Russell Perry

Arising out of bebop vocals, a number of singers in the 1950s began to replicate famous instrumental solos with the human voice. The practice, initiated by Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure and Annie Ross was known as vocalese and reached its peak in the extraordinary recordings of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross.

Ran Blake & Christine Correa: Streaming

Read "Streaming" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Back in 1946, Ran Blake watched The Spiral Staircase and was rather freaked. This classic chiller's opening scene shows a silent film flickering whilst a woman accompanies the visuals on piano. Blake later composed his own piano sketches for each character and wrote fan letters to the entire cast. His only reply came from Carlton, the ...

L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy

Read "L'ultimo hipster. La vita e la musica di Mark Murphy" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non trovate accenni a Mark Murphy nelle più recenti storie del jazz, neanche il nome. Una lacuna che appare inspiegabile (a differenza di Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormè e Tony Bennett) che si giustifica solo col ritardo a collocare il cantante di Syracuse in una prospettiva storica. Eppure già prima della sua scomparsa -il ...

Annie Ross: A Handful Of Songs

Read "A Handful Of Songs" reviewed by Roger Farbey

This release on British label Él Records sells itself short since it's very much more than just A Handful Of Songs. It's actually more like a veritable cornucopia of songs. Covering two CDs, in addition to the title album there's A Gasser! and the original cast of the London Production of the revue Cranks, named after ...

Alyssa Allgood: Out Of The Blue

Read "Out Of The Blue" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Chicago vocalist Alyssa Allgood devotes her first full length album to an unexpected source: the classic hard bop repertoire of Blue Note Records. The label is mainly known for instrumental jazz, and all of these selections were originally instrumental. This presents no problem for Allgood, who demonstrates equal facility scatting, singing wordless vocalise, and writing lyrics ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
