Mellow Mama

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Dinah Washington's first solo recordings with the exception of a session supervised by Lionel Hampton in 1943 are included on this Delmark repackaging of her Apollo sides. Recorded in Los Angeles during a three-day period, the 12 selections feature the singer with a swinging jazz combo that has tenor-saxophonist Lucky Thompson, trumpeter Karl George, vibraphonist Milt Jackson and bassist Charles Mingus among its eight members. The 21-year-old Washington was already quite distinctive at this early stage and easily handles the blues and jive material with color and humor. Recommended despite the brevity 34 minutes of the CD.
