Morning Music: Lambert, Hendricks & Ross

Lambert, Hendricks & RossWell, yesterday I mentioned that I was researching today’s post. Norm commented on the Morning Music featuring The Manhattan Transfer that if people liked that song they should check out Lambert, Hendricks & Ross. I thought I would second that recommendation.

The connection between this two posts is that Annie Ross had written the song “Twisted.” In fact, the trio recorded the song. You can hear their album cut on YouTube. But you know, I try to limit the morning posts to actual live performances — or something similar. So here they are in 1961 at Jazz à Juan doing the Eddie Vinson[1] song “Four” backed by Les McCann. I assume the group created the lyrics, but I don’t know.

If you want to hear some amazing scatting, check out this video on YouTube.


[1] According to Wikipedia, the song is often misidentified as a Miles Davis composition because he recorded it first. I checked my fake book, and sure enough, it says “Miles Davis.”

  1. Frank, that’s great. After listening to the first video, I was going to post Airegin but you beat me to it. Scatting like Lambert and Hendricks is an art.
    Absolutely thrilling. Thanks again. Also Annie Ross had some terrific solo albums as well. Also she is easy on the eyes.

    • I know, it is amazing. And I agree about Ross, but I always get in trouble when I start down that road!
