Complete Recorded Works, Vol. 3 (1928-39)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The third of three Document Lizzie Miles CDs has some of the finest recordings of the singer's career, particularly on the first half of this disc. After three numbers with a trio not helped by the presence of clarinetist Bob Fuller, Miles performs two superior songs "You're Such a Cruel Papa to Me" and "My Dif'rent Kind of Man" while joined by cornetist King Oliver, Albert Socarras doubling on flute and alto and pianist Clarence Williams. Miles fits right in with a hot combo led by the unknown Jasper Davis probably a pseudonym that includes cornetist Louis Metcalf, altoist Charlie Holmes and pianist Cliff Jackson.

After three numbers with a trio not helped by the presence of clarinetist Bob Fuller, Miles performs two superior songs "You're Such a Cruel Papa to Me" and "My Dif'rent Kind of Man" while joined by cornetist King Oliver, Albert Socarras doubling on flute and alto and pianist Clarence Williams. Miles fits right in with a hot combo led by the unknown Jasper Davis probably a pseudonym that includes cornetist Louis Metcalf, altoist Charlie Holmes and pianist Cliff Jackson. She is also featured on two songs in duet with the great pianist Jelly Roll Morton, three tunes with pianist Harvey Brooks including "My Man O' War" and "Electrician Blues" and joined by the trio of pianist Porter Grainger, guitarist Teddy Bunn and bassist Pops Foster highlighted by "Yellow Dog Gal Blues" in 1930. Nine years passed before Lizzie Miles had an opportunity to record again. At the age of 44 she sounds fine on seven numbers with the Melrose Stompers a Chicago swing septet whose personnel is long lost from 1939; the band is also heard taking "Mellow Rhythm" as an instrumental. Highly recommended, particularly for the 1928-30 recordings, this CD has Lizzie Miles' last recordings before she began her comeback in 1952.
