Product Description

RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2007 From her debut singing with The Earl Hines Band in 1952 to her 2000 Croatian language album Jelena Ana Milcetic, the lovely Helen Merrill has been a song stylist supreme! In 1954, Merrill recorded her first (and to date most acclaimed) LP, an eponymous record featuring legendary jazz trumpet player Clifford Brown and bassist/cellist Oscar Pettiford, among others. It was to be one of Brown's last recordings, as he was killed in a car accident just two years later. The album was produced and arranged by Quincy Jones, who was then just twenty-one years old. The success of Helen Merrill prompted Mercury to sign her for an additional four-album contract. Merrill's follow-up to Helen Merrill was the 1956 LP, Dream of You, which was produced and arranged by bebop arranger and pianist Gil Evans. Evans' work on Dream of You was his first in many years. His arrangements on Merrill's laid the musical foundations for his in following years with Miles Davis. Both these wonderful albums get their first European CD airing here... and they just don't come any better! (Helen Merrill moved to Japan in 1967 and became such a megastar that her son, Alan Sachs, had to adopt the name Merrill when he launched his musical career there! Alan of course went on to write the classic I Love Rock n Roll, so coolness is obviously in the blood!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Comme à l'époque ! 25 April 2011
By PVP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Acheté cet album qui en compte deux en réalité pour découvrir cette chanteuse des années 50 et 60 ; Je n'en suis pas sorti bouleversé ; tous ces titres me semblent tellement lointains et réchauffés... En fait ce disque vaut pour son anecdote : production et arrangements du tout jeune Quincy Jones, alors à des années lumières de Michael Jackson ! ! !
