Attention, VPL jazz fans -

This dynamite, 2-disc set contains 34 tracks in all, featuring the outstanding vocal talents of some of the most celebrated, female, jazz singers who were primarily active during the 1950's and 60's.

It's hard to determine why Verve Records (who produced this CD compilation) chose the tunes that they did - 'Cause I found that a number of these tracks weren't always the best choice to showcase a particular singer's vocal talents to their full advantage.

Anyway - Out of this otherwise enjoyable collection - 3 of my all-time favourite tunes were - Blue Gardenia (performed by Dianah Washington), My Baby Just Cares For Me (performed by Nina Simone), and Lullaby In Birdland (performed by Sarah Vaughan)..... (*Watch music-video*)

P.S. - Other notable singers included on these 2 discs are - Etta James, Ella Fiitzgerald, and Cleo Laine, to name but a few.
