Lambert, Hendricks & Ross
The Hottest New Group in Jazz
1959-62

Taking its title from the first of the three Columbia albums it compiles (the others being L,H&R Sing Ellington and High Flying with the Ike Isaacs Trio), this double CD set documents one of the hottest vocal groups of any genre, ever. Combining vocalese (the art of putting lyrics to previously improvised instrumental solos), scat, and more traditional jazz and R&B singing, Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks and Annie Ross made music that is inventive, sophisticated, humorous, and swinging. "Twisted," "Cottontail," and "Farmer's Market" are just a few of the many gems included here.
