Product Description

Product Description

A living legend, "the Godmother of the Cool School of jazz vocalizing" and one of the most talented singers to emerge from the swing era, Anita O'Day was a masterful scat singer and true improviser.

Hard-swinging and hard-living, she had her own unique style that was unmatched by any of her contemporaries. Her exuberant vocal abilities could make even the most recognizable standards seem fresh and innovative.

Her classic 50s and 60s catalogue is still largely out of print and is extremely collectable and the recordings that comprise this compilation are from her best era.

Popular in Japan and the United States amongst both jazz and pop fraternities, her style of understated scat singing is of particular appeal to the Japanese. She has toured Japan innumerable times and has a big following there.

She continued performing and recording throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s and has this year released "Indestructible!", her first album release in thirteen years.

Simply the hippest female vocalist in the history of jazz, very modern and avant-garde in style.

5.0 out of 5 stars yet another great cd from anita 6 Jan 2009

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This cd is a great compilation of anita's work in the early to mid fifties. There are some wonderful jazz standards on this cd showing a much more mellow side to the swingin anita. This is a great cd to chill to, get a coffee and just relax and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars More like a pitcher of martinis 13 Dec 2006
By Charlie Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a nice selection of Anita's mid-1950s Verve material. It is mistitled, however. Coffee suggests an emphasis on her more uptempo material, and the cover photo from her Newport Jazz Festival appearance (which featured her spectacular, virtuosic ride on "Tea for Two") strengthens this impression. But most of the songs here reflect a mellower, more reflective mood. This CD makes excellent late night listening, accompanied by your favorite cocktail. Most of the backup here is rhythm section or small group. Sound quality is good mono. Recommended, but you should check out some of Anita's other work for a more representative appreciation of her music.
