Anita ODay has long been admired as one of the very best jazz singers of the post-war era, with a rhythmic and dynamic style that she could readily deploy in big band, small group and sophisticated orchestral environments. Acrobat has already showcased her work during the early 1940s with the orchestras of Gene Krupa and Stan Kenton ('Anita ODay - The Early Years 1941-45' ADDCD3098), and in this collection we focus on a similar period of years during the 1950s when she firmly carved for herself a significant place in the jazz pantheon. During the decade from 1952-62, she recorded for the labels established by jazz impresario Norman Granz Clef, Norgran and, most famously, Verve and her recordings during that time are recognised as the most significant of her career. This excellent-value 46-track 2CD set comprises the complete content of her albums during the first five years of that era - 'Anita O'Day Collates', 'Songs By Anita O'Day', “An Evening With Anita O'Day', 'Anita' and 'Pick Yourself Up', (some titles appear on more than one LP) plus tracks from singles. On those albums she is accompanied variously by the orchestras of Ralph Burns, Roy Kral, Larry Russell and Buddy Bregman, with musicians on the sessions including Barney Kessel, Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Shelly Manne, Budd Johnson, Andy Secrest, Jimmy Giuffre, Paul Smith and many more. Its a snapshot of a key era in her career, and a fine showcase for her unique talent working across a range of musical environments.
