Waaaaaay Overdue on CD 25 Feb. 2012
By tick tock - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
So there I was sitting in this little underground jazz bar in Kyoto about twelve years ago having a conversation with some friends about jazz vocalists. I guess the barkeep was listening because suddenly this recording was put on the turntable. I had never heard Alexandria before. When I asked who was singing, the barkeep laid this album on the table, smiled, and walked off. I was blown away by what I was hearing and embarrassed I hadn't known about this amazing singer before.

All I can say is what an album this is... and Ramsey and the boys do a wonderful job of backing her up. I've been looking for this album ever since I first heard Alexandria sing, and to say I'm thrilled this has been released would be something of an understatement.

Lorez was vocal magic! 5 Feb. 2011
By Thomas Ludwig - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Lorez Alexandria was one of the most underrated jazz singers in American Music History! And she IS one of the best story tellers ever. Her diction, her phrasing is flawless and the lyrics are filled with pure meaning and feeling. She doesn't do any vocal gimmicks like others did. Dakota Staton (which I like a lot) very often did vocal gimmicks--even a Billie Holiday sometimes did it... But Lorez stays close to the music and the lyrics. Some listeners mix up vocal gimmicks with "emotional investment"... She could handle pure Jazz singing, as in "Deep Roots" with the unmatched version of "Nature Boy" and also sing the Blues so touching and effortless like on the second album "Early in the morning", on both occasions accompanied with fantastic musicians like Ramsey Lewis, Frank Wess, Al Grey, etc. As a bonus you get her legendary renditions of "Baltimore Oriole" (both 50s and 60s versions) She definitely was one of the Greats and was in the same row as the other Greats like Holiday, McRae etc. Enjoy an almost forgotten, but fantastic singer!

Do yourself a favor -- buy this music! 12 Oct. 2013
By Jay - Published on
Format: Audio CD
One of the best female jazz vocalists of the 20th century. Sadly neglected -- Lorez Alexandria is an American cultural treasure. I feel sorry for a person who goes through a lifetime without knowing this artist's work.

So fine! 4 April 2013

I hadn't heard LA in years, and this cd has many wonderful song interpretations including two takes of one of my favorites, "Baltimore Oriole."

deep roots is better than early in the morning 6 Oct. 2010
By Jay Holder - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Deep Roots is a better album in my opinion than Early in the Morning (more upbeat). Lorez improvises with a lot of little trills and technically she is very good. However, she lacks conviction in her singing. Billie Holiday, Anita O`Day and Dakota Station have sung many of these songs while still conveying the meaning of the lyrics. With Lorez I feel she is just singing the words and they lack any true meaning. There seems to be no true emotional investment.
