“Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Dakota Staton attended the famed George Westinghouse High School, (alumni include pianist Ahmed Jamal, possibly at the same time!) and went on to study music before entering the music scene through that tried and tested, and very tough route, of the night club circuit. From a young age she was travelling around the country appearing in night clubs from Detroit to Indianapolis to Cleveland and to St. Louis and to Harlem in New York, where she was discovered by Capitol Records producer Dave Cavanaugh who promptly signed her to a recording deal with Capitol. Dakota made many highly acclaimed albums in the 1950s and 1960s and we have included five here for your listening pleasure. There may be more to come!”
And here they are! Our original sales notes to accompany our first acclaimed Dakota Staton release promised more to come. Well it’s not five albums this time but four, but hey, when they are this great, it’s quality not quantity that counts! Check out AMSC1259 for more great Dakota Staton music.
