Ultimate Anita O'Day based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
First time I ever heard O'Day was on an old Big Band compilation my folks had. It was the original version of ''Let Me Off Uptown'' & I fell in love with this white girl who had soul long before Dusty Springfield, Lulu, and Janis Joplin cornered the market. A newer version of ''Uptown'' leads off this set personally (and perfectly) picked out by Manhattan Transfer's Alan Paul. Anita has such a gorgeous way with phrasing, it takes my breath away sometimes.
