O’s Notes: Vocalist Annie Ross teams up with a polished quintet that includes Warren Vaché (horns) and Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar. They have a strong sense of swing that makes you reminisce on these 14 classics from the masters: Gershwin, Mercer and Strayhorn to name a few. Annie’s tone is raspy and notes short but she’s aging gracefully. She has been in show business for decades, acting and singing with legends like Ellington. This CD is the music that is associated with her memoirs, the story of her life in the spotlight. We anxiously await the book.
