Well, 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 song “Four” backed by Les McCann. I assume the group created the lyrics, but I don’t know.
