Editors’ Notes

This is the Queen of the Blues' most spirited session. Washington displays her versatility by not singing blues at all, but ballsy versions of standards in a jam session with the likes of Clifford Brown, Clark Terry, and Maynard Ferguson. The result is spectacular. The ballads are heart-stopping, while the up-tempo stuff is breathtaking. She reinvents "You Go to My Head" and her final chorus of "Lover Come Back To Me" tears the roof off the studio.

NO TRUE JAZZ FAN LOSES WITH THIS RECORD.
