Reseña de álbum

For this 1960 session, Kay Starr joined the Van Alexander & His Orchestra — with whom she had worked on earlier recordings — to produce an album of so-called "jazz singer songs." With her deep, husky saloon singer-type voice, Starr swings a set of 12 songs all arranged by Alexander in a variety of tempos. Helped along on such tracks as "I Never Knew" by a wailing, soulful electric organ and a singing ensemble, Starr applies her one-of-a-kind technique to these hardy standards. She brings to most of the tunes that "hillbilly"/blues inflection she developed very early in her career when she was singing on radio stations first in Dallas and then in Memphis.

Her biggest hit came with the era-defining "Wheel of Fortune," a prime slice of '50s adult pop with a suitably brassy reading. Born in Oklahoma, she moved to Dallas at a young age and made her debut on radio while still in school. A brief stay with...
