Atlantic Jazz Vocals: Voices of Cool, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Cook
Rhino helps Atlantic sift through its vocal holdings with this fine and somewhat rarefied mix of sides. Cutting across time and styles, the 20-track set takes in both the obscure likes of Betty Bennett and Frances Wayne and more high-profile singers such as Helen Merrill and Bobby Short. Tapping into Atlantic's well-known R&B stock, the collection also spotlights rough-hewn yet powerful work by Ruth Brown, LaVern Baker, Jimmy Witherspoon, and Big Joe Turner. And deserving special mention, Jackie & Roy's "Ever Lovin' Blues" and Al Hibbler's "Travelin' Light" are also included. A treat.
