Description

For many years now, Abbey Lincoln has been recognized as a strong and strong-minded, racially aware and rhythmically secure artist. But early in her career--as a striking-looking young woman making the transition from being a sleek supper-club performer--it was difficult to gain acceptance as a true jazz singer. This seems hard to understand now, listening to her treatments of material by such as Duke Ellington and Kurt Weill, accompanied by a galaxy of players who always knew her worth like Max Roach, Wynton Kelly, Cedar Walton, Kenny Dorham, Stanley Turrentine, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones. With Kenny Dorham, Tommy Turrentine, Julian Priester, Stanley Turrentine, Wynton Kelly, Phil Wright, Cedar Walton, Les Spann, Sam Jones, Bobby Boswell, Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach.
