Anita the best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Four Classic Albums: Anita Sings the Most/the Lady Is a Tramp/An Evening With Anita O'day/Anita (Audio CD)
In my book Anita O'Day has always been one of the very best jazz singers. These 2 CD's contain 4 albums, all recorded in the 50'es, and there is no doubt that "Anita sings the most" with Oscar Peterson's Quartet is the best, and, for instance, "We'll be together again" and "Stella by starlight" are just beautiful versions.
On "Anita O'Day - the lady is a tramp" she joins forces with her old jazz buddy from Gene Krupa's Big Band, Roy Eldridge, and even though "Vaya con Dios" cannot be termed as a jazz tune, her version is sweeter and with greater feeling than the famous hit with Les Paul/Mary Ford from 1953.
On "An evening with Anita O'Day" and "Anita" she is primarily accompanied by small groups, and here is a "smorgaasbord" of beloved standards. All served with her dynamic and rhythmic talents and cool sexy voice.
A must buy for Anita fans.
