felser Posted October 3, 2007 Report Share Posted October 3, 2007 (edited) Listening to this CD right now for the first time, and pretty blown away by it, and by Alexandria in general (I've heard little of her). What an amazing singer. Why isn't she mentioned with the giants? She's that good to my ears, up there with anyone who ever stepped to the mike. This is a late 50's live date, with the King Fleming sextet, who have some pretty interesting personnel. Charles Stepney, the great 60's-70's Chess arranger, plays vibes. Vernal Fournier, of Ahmad Jamal fame, plays drums. Earl May on bass, Fleming on piano, Cy Touff on bass trumpet, and Paul Serrano on trumpet. Anyone else dig Alexandria as much as me? Or are my ears overestimating her? Also, any other recommendations on her King and Argo albums? Edited October 3, 2007 by felser Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
