Editors’ Notes

Crackling with charisma, this 1954 release presents the Queen of the Blues in her most spirited session. As Washington flaunts her versatility on brassy standards, her killer backing combo (Clifford Brown, Max Roach, Clark Terry, Harold Land, and Maynard Ferguson) almost steals the show. But there’s only one star here—Washington’s performance is a spectacle of explosive power and emotion. Check out "You Go to My Head" and the final chorus of "Lover Come Back to Me,” where the legendary singer blows the roof off the studio.

NO TRUE JAZZ FAN LOSES WITH THIS RECORD.
