Album Review

Hep Records presents a worthy tribute to one of the great jazz vocalists of the 1930s. Ivie Anderson (1905-1949) is heard with Duke Ellington and his orchestra on two-dozen recordings made between February 2, 1932 and March 23, 1937. Much of the material comes straight out of Tin Pan Alley, including four tunes by Harold Arlen, and there are a pair of songs composed by pianist Alex Hill. The Anderson/Ellington renditions of "Truckin'" and "Did Anyone Ever Tell You" invite comparison with contemporaneously recorded versions by Fats Waller & His Rhythm. "I've Got to Be a Rug Cutter" and "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," two of the four selections from the Ellington book, typify the excitable and at times rowdy aspect of New York's jazz scene during the '30s.
