Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks and Annie Ross revolutionised the world of vocal jazz in the 1950s. With their unique musical and lyrical techniques, the trio combined bop harmonies with complex lyrical settings to create a unique sound that laid the groundwork for later groups like Manhattan Transfer. Blending the talents of Lambert as arranger, Hendricks as lyricist and Ross’ graceful vocals, the trio recorded a series of ground-breaking albums which drew admiration from jazz musicians and attracted numerous fans. This 43-track 2CD set comprises all the titles from the albums Sing A Song Of Basie, Sing Along With Basie, The Swingers and The Hottest New Group In Jazz.
Reviews For The Early Years 1954-59 (2CD)
In Tune (331) - Gerry Stonestreet
“A worthy tribute to a group who made a unique (and for once the word is justified) contribution to the world of jazz.”
The Jazz Rag 158 – Val Wiseman
“Their work was considered groundbreaking when these tracks we released in the late 1950s. Listening to them some 60 years on dosen't lessen the impact.”
Jazz Journal October 2019 – Steve Voce
“An excellent reference to dip into for half an hour at a time.”
