Album Review

The immortal vocal jazz group Lambert, Hendricks & Ross recorded five albums during its career: one apiece for Impulse! and World Pacific and three for Columbia. This two-CD set has all of the music from LH&R's Columbia dates (The Hottest Group in Jazz, Sing Ellington, and High Flying), plus four previously unissued and three very obscure selections. Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and Annie Ross were all very talented jazz singers as individuals, and were masters of vocalese. Virtually every one of their performances was special and, in the long run, influential. With assistance from the Gildo Mahones Trio, trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison (on the earliest album), and altoist Pony Poindexter (during the seven bonus tracks), the vocal group is heard in memorable form throughout the two-fer. Among the many highlights are "Twisted," "Cloudburst," Hendricks' hilarious "Gimme That Wine," "Everybody's Boppin'," "Cotton Tail," "All Too Soon," "Main Stem," "Farmer's Market," "Cookin' at the Continental," "Halloween Spooks," and "Popity Pop." Essential music for all serious jazz collections.

Customer Reviews


I discovered LHR in a stack of my parent's albums, and they blew my mind! Anita O'Day is another great along with Ella. But LHR will pull me out of any bad mood any time any place. If this doesn't get you moving your dogs, check your pulse!

Classic scat vocals

This is classic jazz vocals like no other. Classic songs and the way they use their voices as instruments is truly incredible. There are other great scat jazz artists like Ella and Mel, but L,H,&R are as good as you can get. They are truly missed.

This is the real deal!

There are few vocalists around worthy of carrying Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross's bags!


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...
