Annie Ross Sings A Song With Mulligan!


Annie has been singing wondrously well, with strong swing, peppery bite, archness and potent feeling since 1950 when first I heard her in Paris. But, until Richard Bock made the dead right decision to record la Ross with Gerry Mulligan, Annie’s perambulating orchard has been almost shut except to those peripatetic addicts who got hooked on Ross in the jazz backyards of Paris, London and New York.

Singer Annie Ross’ first solo album after joining Lambert, Hendricks & Ross finds her at the peak of her powers. Ross is joined by two versions of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet with either Chet Baker or Art Farmer on trumpet, Bill Crow or Henry Grimes on bass, and drummer Dave Bailey. Annie Ross is at her best (and most appealing) on “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Your Face,” “Give Me the Simple Life,” “How About You,” and “The Lady’s in Love With You,” but all 14 selections are quite rewarding and her interplay with baritone Mulligan is consistently memorable.


I Feel Pretty
How About You?
I’ve Grown Accustomed to Your Face
This Time the Dream’s on Me
Let There Be Love
The Lady’s in Love with You
You Turned the Tables on Me
All of You
Give Me the Simple Life
This Is Always
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
It Don’t Mean a Thing
My Old Flame
I Guess I’ll Have to Change My Plan
