Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross

Lambert, Hendricks and Ross came together in 1957 to record “Sing a Song of Basie”, note-for-note multi-track duplications of the original solos and arrangements of Count Basie standards. This live performance of Everyday (a cut from the Basie album) shows they didn’t need overdubbing to duplicate the excitement of a big band. The too-twee-by-half trombone riffs, and the verbatim horn exclamation points are a bit much, but despite all that…..this group could really swing.

Domino Rally has a download of Annie Ross’ signature tune “Twisted”, and singers.com has a generous sampling of some of the band’s best.
