Album Review

Lambert, Hendricks and Ross made their debut on Columbia in 1959, and this CD contains not only all of the music from their first CBS album, but five titles from two later records. This set has many memorable classics from the great singers Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks (the top vocalese lyricist) and Annie Ross. Highlights include the upbeat "Charleston Alley," a remake of Ross' "Twisted," the heated "Cloudburst," Hendricks' humorous "Gimme That Wine," "Summertime" (a recreation of Miles Davis' version with Gil Evans), and "Come on Home." Although Lambert, Hendricks and Ross only lasted a few years, their influence on other vocal groups was enormous. This set is a perfect place for collectors to begin to explore their vocal magic.

Customer Reviews

It's Swingin'!

A finer vocal jazz trio cannot be found! Great fun to hear lyrics added to jazz standards that double your pleasure! Decades before Manhattan Transfer and the New York Voices were born, LHR were scattin' and swinging! (Annie Ross will shatter your glass eye!) Dare you to keep your seat while diggin' this!

Everybody's Bopping'

Inventive, haunting renditions of songs of my youth. First example of stretching the limits of vocal likenesses to songs heretofore unsingable, arrangements of wit and lyricism; my youthful friends and I memorized every syllable.

Everybody's Boppin' is a "must have" for the complete Jazz collection

Some musical acts fall into the category of "National Treasure". Certainly Annie Ross' and Jon Hendricks' vocals qualify for that description, and perhaps Dave Lambert's arrangements and easily blended baritone were the straw that stirred the drink. I found this group by holding on to the memory of hearing "Cloudburst" as a young teenager, but not having heard who sang it. I chanced on a cassette tape when I was in my thirties, and what a beautiful resolution to a lifetime search. This recording represents a pinnacle in vocal interpretation of Jazz and perhaps the most compelling scat since Ella. I can't praise this album enough. Turns out my favorite track is "Centerpiece", but "Cloudburst" will just blow your mind.

Biography

Formed: 1957

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '50s, '60s

The premier jazz vocal act of all time, Lambert, Hendricks & Ross revolutionized vocal music during the late '50s and early '60s by turning away from the increasingly crossover slant of the pop world to embrace the sheer musicianship inherent in vocal jazz. Applying the concepts of bop harmonies to swinging vocal music, the trio transformed dozens of instrumental jazz classics into their own songs, taking scat solos and trading off licks and riffs in precisely the same fashion as their favorite improvising...
