Abbey Lincoln – Abbey Is Blue
Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne
"Abbey Is Blue" originally recorded in New York in the spring and fall of 1959 comes as a reissue this spring.
A strong-willed and rhythmically assured artist who is particularly vocal against racism, she had trouble being accepted as a genuine jazz singer early in her career - absolutely unimaginable from today's perspective!
Anyone who hears her song with works by Duke Ellington and Kurt Weill knows she is one of the greats.
She is accompanied by musicians such as Max Roach, Wynton Kelly, Cedar Walton, Kenny Dorham, Stanley Turrentine, Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones, who have always known her worth.
