Mildred Bailey -> Paul Bascomb

MILDRED BAILEY The Old Masters TOM 103 Volume 1 - Sweet Beginnings ● CD $13.98

 
MILDRED BAILEY The Old Masters TOM 104 Volume 2 - Band Vocalist ● CD $13.98
22 Tracks, 73 min. good Bailey had a pleasing voice and a swinging sense of both rhythm and phrasing which allowed her to take on a great emotional range of songs. She could sound sexy, contrite or virtuous and could certainly sing the blues (check her out fronting Benny goodman on the two takes of Junk Man). Bailey is also heard here with Paul Whiteman (her brother was in his vocal trio) and the Dorsey Brothers. Highlights include Love Me Tonight/ I'll Never Be The Same/ Snowball/ Rocking Chair/ Heatwave. My favorite, however, is Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Love. Interesting. (PL)

PEARL BAILEY Columbia CK 47082 16 Most Requested Songs ● CD $11.98
16 sides recorded for Columbia in 1945, backed by small combos. Bailey's sharp vocals cut like a knife through these mostly uptempo numbers - St. Louis Blues/ Who/ Don't Ever Leave Me/ Ain't She Sweet/ Frankie And Johnny. But the beauty of her voice is evident in the ballads Tired/ Personality/ Here You Come With Your Love. Some hot horn solos by Billy Butterfield. A nice collection, 48 minutes of top-notch vocal jazz. (PG)
