Product Description

Product Description

What a difference O'Day makes!!
AVID Jazz here presents four classic Anita O'Day albums on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. `Anita Sings The Most', `The Lady Is A Tramp', `An Evening With Anita O'Day' and `Anita'.
Born in Chicago, Anita O'Day cut her musical teeth in the 1940's playing with the Gene Krupa Band and the Stan Kenton Band during which time she had her first widespread successes with `And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine' and `Tampico' which allowed her to head out on her own as a single act.
Using a wide range of musical accompanists including the Oscar Peterson Trio, Barney Kessel Jimmy Rowles, Tal Farlow and Roy Eldridge, our four classic albums highlight a unique singing talent that put Anita up there with Billie, Ella and Mildred Bailey and went on to influence such great singers as June Christy and Chris Connor.
All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars the buy of a lifetime ANITA SWINGS THE MOST 11 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
This 4-albums-in-two-cds package was one of the best buys in my life...
I got it on UK amazon for the price smaller than the price of ANY of these single albums!

Starting with "Anita sings the most", I can say that it's no wonder that album is often mentioned as one of the best in Anita O'Day's rich and long career; working beautifully with Oscar Peterson classic trio (Herb Ellis-g, Ray Brown-b) plus John Pool on drums, Anita is equally impressive in slower tempos and in her trademark neck-breaking hyper-swinging elloquence...

One of the strength's of this magnificent singer is a strong individuality, ability to make every song a part of her hip and sometimes even sarcastic worldview... Although at first her style might remind you of Ella Fitzgerald, the liberties she takes with tempo and rhythm actually make her closer to Billie Holiday or Betty Carter, the mood she projects with her timbre makes her a distant cousin of Carmen McRae but, make no mistake, she is Anita O'Day, the one and only... With the nifty and versatile fingers of Oscar and the crew behind her, this album shouldn't have gone wrong and I feel it fullfiled its magnificent potential.
The second album "The Lady is a Tramp" is more commercially oriented; with some jazz tracks but also with very straightforward (dull) "Vaya con Dios" and quite insulting "Rock 'N' Blues" (that is, insulting to this jazz fan who couldn't believe to what lowsy use Anita and Roy Eldridge were put). That album (second part of the first CDs) has three arrangers (Ralph Burns and Roy Kral both of whom also play the piano on their respective tracks, and Larry Russell), even more musicians line-ups and no concept; it's quite anti-climactic after "Anita Sings the Most"...

Format:Audio CD
Chances are you know Anita O Day well if you read this review. So in that case, I think you ought to buy this double CD. It is great value for money. If you don't know her I think you should give this music a chance. Anita O Day is a great vocalist and there is some great music on these CD's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful surprise 21 Jun 2009
By *
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, I like a lot Frank Sinatra's way of singing and finding these excellent recordings allowed me to meet his alter ego among female vocalists. Anita O'Day phrasing is very intelligent and one remains under the spell of her delivery throughout this sensational presentation of her talent. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anita O'Day _ 4 Classic Albums 23 Nov 2010
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One reviewer has already done a very detailed review of the content of this package to which little can be added. Her fans will know she served her apprenticeship singing with bands fronted by Gene Krupa (2yr & another 1yr), Stan Kenton (1 yr) and another short stint with Woody Herman. If you like her husky-voiced swinging style, or want an introduction to her singing, this collection is as good a place to start as any. Most of the tracks are up-tempo with a small jazz combo backing. Almost all of the tracks here are standards, so they're too numerous to list. Overall, 47 good tracks, well sung and arranged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seduced by the 'Jezebel' 23 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
Firstly if you're hesitating over purchasing this album, DON'T! just buy it. It really is a no brainer at this price, this was my first purhase of O'day's material, as others have said its a great introduction to her talents.

Four great albums....well 'The Lady Is A Tramp' album maybe not up to par with the rest IMO; as stated by another reviewer-Nikica Gilic with whom I do agree mostly. Its not pure jazz but still listenable the track 'Love for Sale' one of the highlights.

The other three albums are great, I listen to this compilation alot, there's a real mixture, fast tempos- especially on 'Anita Sings The Most' fantastic album. From this wonderful album personal highs include; 'Love me or leave me' and 'Them there eyes' pure class, then slower numbers such as the smooth, almost haunting 'Tenderly' which for me is my favourite song on this comp, the brilliant 'Stella by starlight' being another gem.

I could go on there's so much to choose from here, even if you only like one of the albums; though I can't see how, you're still getting a real bargain.

Some people accused her of ripping off the likes of Billie and Ella, which I don't agree, she holds her own, whilst she admired Billie Holiday, inspired by even, whats wrong with that many great artists if not all are influenced by others. She has her own distinct 'sassy' sound, which seduced me anyway!

My review might be a bit messy, all over the place, my apologies! Others on here probably put it better haha. Anyway let your own ears persuade you!

I did write a review some months back now, but for some reason, technical glinches on amazon error prevented its submission, got round to writing it again as I think its worthy of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and a bargain too! 28 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a true bargain. Two full CD's of 'The Jezebel of Jazz' singing timeless songs in her own instantly recognisable way. Each CD is well over 70 minutes. How can you go wrong for this price?
