Abbey Lincoln's Affair: A Story Of A Girl In Love
This CD reissues the music from Abbey Lincoln's first LP along with two slightly earlier numbers originally available as singles. At the time, Lincoln was making the transition from a potential sex symbol and lounge singer to a dramatic jazz interpreter. Her voice was recognizable even at this early stage, but some of the ballads are more lightweight than the ones she would be performing in the near future. Backed by anonymous orchestras arranged by Benny Carter, Jack Montrose, and Marty Paich, Abbey Lincoln's straightforward delivery was already impressive and pleasing. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi
