ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eddie Jefferson, the jazz singer who is universally credited with creating the jazz solo vocal line made this famous recording in 1959. It was produced by Herb Abramson, a founder of Atlantic Records. He subsequently sold the masters to Inner City, a jazz label that had a meteoric rise and fall between 1978 and 1982. This recording, originally released in 1977, has languished in that company’s vault until now. The music includes the most famous songs associated with Jefferson, including Moody’s Mood For Love, a paraphrase on the standard, I’m In The Mood For Love, Body & Soul, So What, Night Train, Sister Sadie, Now Is The Time. James Moody, the composer of the unique solo on Moody’s Mood For Love is featured on this recording along with Howard McGee on trumpet, one of the bop era's shining stars.

Abramson, whose discovery of such stars as Ray Charles and Ruth Brown, knew a good thing when he heard it. These vocals abound with skill, melody, and great enthusiasm. They were the forerunners of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, Annie Ross, King Pleasure, and the Manhattan Transfer.
