Album Review

This little-known set (reissued on CD) from 1956 features singer Annie Ross four years after she originally recorded "Twisted" but a year before the formation of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross. Based in London at the time, Ross avoids scatting and vocalese in favor of conventional swinging and jazz-oriented interpretations of standards. Backed tastefully by pianist Tony Crombie, clarinetist Bob Burns, guitarist Roy Plummer and bassist Lennie Rush, Annie Ross shows that she could have been a successful solo artist if she had not met up with Dave Lambert and Jon Hendricks; at times she almost sounds like Susannah McCorkle.

oohh! interesting quiet skylark! i'm on a "skylark" hunt today and have also found great versions by Sarah Partridge, Boz Scaggs, Ella...

Ahh Yes.

I adore Annie Ross. Everything she sings rings true. Song choices are wonderful. Once saw her at a performance of Sarah Partridge in New York, years ago. Ironically, Partridge has just released an album with "Gypsy In My Soul" and "Skylark". I'll be buying both Ross and Partridge. They compliment eachother!

SKYLARK-ANNIE ROSS

I HAD ALWAYS LOVED LAMBERT, HENDRICKS AND ROSS, BUT I HAD NEVER HEARD ANNIE BEFORE SHE MET THOSE TWO. THIS IS FASCINATING, BESIDES BEING JUST DAMNED GOOD SINGING AS WELL. KUDOS ANNIE. YOU'RE A TREMENDOUS VOCALIST.
