Album Notes and Credits
The history of jazz is rich with so many fine singers, how does a neophyte know where to begin? Or rather, where can a casual fan obtain an assortment of cool songs by the coolest singers? Answer: JAZZ DIVAS: GOLD. This 35-track collection provides a nearly perfect overview of the history of American jazz singing by women, including those singers whose approach neatly straddles both jazz and pop music (Freda Payne, Gloria Lynne, Marlena Shaw). The all-time greats are here, including those who have come to define jazz singing (Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Betty Carter); singers that are also known as blues and/or R&B performers (Etta James, the wonderful Dinah Washington); exemplars of old-school cool (Annie Ross, Helen Merrill) and elegance (Morgana King, Peggy Lee); and modern divas whose approaches absorb non-jazz influences (Cassandra Wilson). This collection is an absolute winner.
