Annie Ross: Four Classic Albums Plus (Annie By Candlelight / Gypsy / A Gasser / Sings A Song With Mulligan) (2CD)
AVID Jazz here presents four classic Annie Ross albums plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
“Annie by Candlelight”, “Gypsy”, “A Gasser” and “ Sings a Song with Mulligan” plus selections from “Singin’ ‘N Swingin’ and “Nocturne for Vocalist”.
(From the liner notes from “Gypsy”)………..”Annie Ross has the unusual distinction of having all her work to date highly rated by critics and laymen alike. A brilliant future seems assured”. Born in Surrey in 1930 Annie led a wild early life due to her Scottish parents’ life as travelling vaudevillians. Becoming a member of the family act at age two she was off to America a year later and by five had been signed to a contract with MGM! Having completed only two films in the decade she was there, (one with Judy Garland), Annie returned to the UK and then on to Paris where she appeared in cabaret singing in both English and French. Tours of Spain and North Africa followed with Coleman Hawkins and also a spell acting for Orson Welles back in Paris. That would seem to be enough activity for one life, but Annie had not even seriously begun her solo career or hooked up with her famous partners in the legendary trio Lambert, Hendricks and Ross! Our four featured albums present Annie solo with such legendary musicians as Zoot Sims, Russ Freeman, Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker from the West Coast cool jazz school and from the UK, The Tony Crombie 4-tet as heard on “Annie By Candlelight” and with the likes of Pete and Conte Candoli, Stan Getz and Jim Hall on their jazz take on the Broadway show “Gypsy”
All four albums plus have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever!
