Avis sur l’album

British label Sepia Records' unlicensed reissue of the 1959 album Betty Hutton at the Saints & Sinners Ball is, in effect, a compilation covering the last five years of Hutton's solo recording career, since it also contains the A- and B-sides of five singles Hutton recorded and released in 1954-1956 (Tracks 1-10), while the original album (Tracks 11-20) was both her only 12" solo LP release and her final trip to a recording studio. Hutton perfected her bravura style of performing in her Capitol Records recordings of the '40s and early ‘50s, as well as her movie career, and it proved well-suited to the more demonstrative manner of the music of the mid-‘50s, when rock & roll was going mainstream. Hutton reflects that, for instance, on her duet with her sister Marion Hutton (formerly of the Glenn Miller Orchestra) on "Ko Ko Mo (I Love You So)," although the singles material also finds her channeling Carmen Miranda on "Banana Boat (Oomba-Oomba-Oomba)"; making like Patti Page on "Back Home"; and recalling her performance as Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun with "Satins and Spurs" (the title song of a TV musical in which she appeared). Her 1954 chart single with Tennessee Ernie Ford, "The Honeymoon's Over," can be called country-boogie, in the style of Hank Williams' "Move It on Over," or proto-rock & roll. Betty Hutton at the Saints & Sinners Ball, recorded for Warner Bros., was something of a concept album that found Hutton alternating secular and spiritual material. Actually, it also has a strong New Orleans flavor. As might be expected, the singer is more at home with the sinners, notably when she is singing the blues on "How Long (Blues)" and "Basin Street Blues," or pleading that she not have her "Rock and Roll Shoes" taken away, although she does sound sincere singing "Whole World in His Hands" (which, oddly, references flying saucers) and "When the Saints Come Marchin' In." The most impressive "saints" number, however, is "Search My Heart," an outright gospel performance featuring the Antioch Evangelist Temple Choir with soloists Odessa McCastle and Catherine Burks. Maybe Betty Hutton is in there somewhere, singing along with the choir, but her participation is not audible, and that reinforces the notion that the sinners are closer to her style.
