Dakota Staton was a jazz and R&B singer very much in the mould of Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington, whose style was sultry and sophisticated but who was extrovert and funky enough to share an R&B stage with the likes of Fats Domino and Big Joe Turner. She paid her dues on the jazz club circuit before signing to Capitol and released a number of singles and claimed Down Beat magazine’s Most Promising Newcomer award before recording her No. 4 hit album The Late, Late Show in 1957. This 57-track 2CD set features all her recordings released as singles from her debut in 1955, along with all the tracks from her albums The Late, Late Show, In The Night, Dynamicand Crazy He Calls Me. A great showcase for the talent of a noted vocal stylist.
