Editorial Review:

Product Description:
We'd like to suggest Anita O'Day actually had several "finest hours," such as her performance at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival; but for those looking for a broader review of her exceptional career, this captures the Jezebel of Jazz at her playful best. Includes her first hit Let Me Off Uptown and the scat masterpiece Four Brothers , plus Honeysuckle Rose; Little Girl Blue; Tea for Two; Boogie Blues; God Bless the Child; The Way You Look Tonight; When Sunny Gets Blue; Peel Me a Grape; Sing, Sing, Sing; Sweet Georgia Brown; The Party's Over , and more. 18 in all!

No jazz singer has ever swung harder or scatted with more infectious enthusiasm than Anita O'Day. This selection of her Verve recordings from 1954 to 1962 shows just how many contexts O'Day could enliven with her presence. Some of her earliest hits are heard here in reprised but still effective form. The 1956 version of "Let Me Off Uptown," with partners Gene Krupa and Roy Eldridge, rekindles its original energy, and arranger Gary McFarland creates a driving 1961 revision of "Boogie Blues." She's clearly comfortable at the fastest tempos, singing "Tea for Two" and "Them There Eyes" at breakneck speed, enjoying matching improvisational wits with an elite assortment of musicians including Oscar Peterson and Phil Woods. A few ballads, like "God Bless the Child" with just Barney Kessel's guitar for accompaniment, provide effective contrast. O'Day is terrific, also, on two wittily steamy selections with Cal Tjader from 1962, "An Occasional Man" and "Peel Me a Grape." --Stuart Broomer
