Description
One of the first white singers to incorporate the innovations of black jazz and blues, Mildred Bailey adored the music of Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters, and Connie Boswell, and she was an early proponent of Louis Armstrong. Renowned for her vocal agility, she could swing with the best of them. Besides her signature song, "Rockin' Chair," this lilting, 18-track collection includes "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm," "A Ghost of a Chance," "I Didn't Know About You," "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone," "I'll Get By," "St. Louis Blues," "Lover Come Back to Me," "When Day Is Done," "It Had to Be You," "That Lucky Fellow," and "Rock It for Me."

"When she began singing with real jazz bands, she came up with a new way of singing — a freedom with the rhythm, wonderful choices of notes, and a natural way of phrasing the lyric that Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and hundreds of other jazz singers admired…. There is no doubt about her seamless voice, her musicianship, or her ears."—Murray Horwitz, NPR's Basic Jazz Record Library
