Product Description

Product Description



Etta James, Ruth Brown, and Little Esther Phillips helped revolutionize American music with early-'50s rock & roll hits, but they grew up thinking of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Dinah Washington as the ultimate in singing. As they got older, James, Brown, and Phillips all recorded pop standards in the style of their original heroes, but James made the most convincing transition from sock-hop shouter to cabaret crooner, culminating in her Grammy-winning album of Holiday songs, Mystery Lady.

James continues this journey with Time After Time, a new collection of pop standards recorded with the same producer (John Snyder) and arranger (pianist Cedar Walton). In the liner notes, James acknowledges learning these songs from vocal models like Washington, Fitzgerald, Etta Jones, Jimmy Scott, Chet Baker, and Frank Sinatra, but James puts her own stamp on every one. Most of these are confessions of weakness by a lover in the throes of new infatuation or fresh heartbreak, but she injects such a feeling of strength into the vocals--both in the robustness of her timbre and in the determination of her attitude--that she gives these well-worn numbers a new spin. She may be dizzy right now, she seems to imply, but she will soon land on her feet. --Geoffrey Himes

By Mary Whipple HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 Jan. 2006
Format: Audio CD
No one can deny Etta James's legendary status as a queen of the blues, and here, in this 1995 recording, she still wails with the best. Surrounded by extraordinary musicians--especially the brilliant Cedar Walton on piano and Eddie Harris and Herman Riley on tenor sax--she turns standards into big, bold, assertive statements, capitalizing on her lower register (much lower than when she was younger). Full of passion, she proclaims her songs, as much as she sings them, using volume and her somewhat harsh voice, instead of sweetness and subtlety, to convey her messages.
"Don't Go to Strangers" is her joke. Often confused with Etta Jones, she begins the CD with Jones's most famous song, giving it her own style and interpretation. Jo Stafford would never recognize what James does with "Teach Me Tonight," an R & B treatment that features one of Eddie Harris's great sax solos. "Fool That I Am," one of her best songs, includes an unusual accompaniment, almost completely limited to the flugelhorn of Ronnie Buttacavoli and guitar of Josh Sklair, who have terrific solos, and one can hear Etta in the background offering them encouragement.
The best song on the CD is "Willow Weep for Me," a stunning song which she begins a capella and sings as if she were one of the originators of old-time blues. Here she keeps the tempo slow, letting out all her emotion in pure blues style, the accompaniment kept simple and very much in the background.
With jazz and the blues embedded deep in her soul, James is still a fine interpreter, and the musicians with whom she surrounds herself are top notch. Her voice, now very deep and dark, is still fine in the middle and upper ranges.

“Time After Time“ by Etta James was released by Private Music in 1995, her 23rd album so far and her 2nd on Private Music, following the very successful “Mystery Lady: Song of Billie Holiday” in 1994. I have compiled a song listing which is as follows (US=US Singles Chart prior to 1955; BB Pop=Billboard Hot 100):

LP “TIME AFTER TIME” (Etta James)(Private Music 82128)(1995):
01 DON’T GO TO STRANGERS*original version by Etta Jones (1960)
02 TEACH ME TONIGHT*original version: Jo Stafford (US 15/1954) and Dinah Washington (US 23/1954); inspired by Dinah’s live performance watched by Etta after a verbal spat at Etta’s live performance. (see Positive Points below for details)
03 LOVE IS HERE TO STAY*original version by Larry Clinton (US 15/1938); vocalist: Bea Wain.
04 THE NEARNESS OF YOU*original version by Glenn Miller & His Orchestra (US 5/1940)
05 TIME AFTER TIME*original version by Frank Sinatra (US 16/1947)
06 MY FUNNY VALENTINE*original version by Hal McIntyre (US 16/1945); this song inspired by Chet Baker; Ronnie Buttacavoli on trumpet.
07 IMAGINATION*original version by Glenn Miller & His Orchestra (US 1(3)/1940); vocal: Marion Hutton.
08 FOOL THAT I AM*Etta James’ original version charted in 1951 (BB R&B 14/1951)
09 WILLOW WEEP FOR ME*original version by Ted Fio Rito (US 17/1932); pop version by Chad & Jeremy.
10 EV’RYBODY’S SOMEBODY’S FOOL*big hit by Connie Francis (BB Pop 1(2)/1960); not to be confused with a similar titled song by Dinah Washington.
11 NIGHT AND DAY*original version by Fred Astaire & Leo Reisman (US 1(10)/1932); also made popular by Frank Sinatra (US 16/1942).

After a couple of numbers I was hooked! The singing has such ‘feel’ to it and the music and vocals sound live - like in a little club somewhere, where the sound just envelops you and you just know it’s a top night and one that won’t be forgotten easily!
The band is superb, with many brilliant little solos. Etta warbles with great emotion, she doesn’t need to break into overdrive, her renditions of the ‘Great American Songbook’ are right up there with the likes of Ella and Frank! Someone on here said that this was one of her best albums and I can see exactly why they would say that.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD Started It All... 15 Aug. 2012
By Glen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD started it all for me. I remembered when I first picked up this CD. I remembered Etta James from my youth when she came out with "Tell Mama". I had mentally typed casted her, because I was not aware of just how talented an artist she was. When I picked up this CD, I realized for the first time how awesome a singer she was. I put her on the level of Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday and the soulful artist of Arthea Franklin all wrapped in one. In my opinion Etta James never received the rightful recognition she deserved. I picked up this CD back in 2000, the next CD I picked up was "Mystery Lady" songs of Billie Holiday. I've been hooked ever since on Etta James. It's hard to count how many Etta James CDs I have now. To me they are all teasures of gold. She's really and truly an acceptional R&B singer. This CD was my introduction to the talent of Etta James.

I am an Etta James fan but the some of the selections on this cd were not my favorites. I will certainly continue to look for more Etta James music on the Amazon site. I purchased "At Last" from Amazon and I love it.

Recording quality isn't the best, but that's to be expected with a performer from the distant past.
