Mary Stallings: But Beautiful
Catalog: HCD 7250
Singer Mary Stallings has enchanted audiences around the world with her divine musicality, elegant stage presence, and a voice that is, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, "supple and timeless, encompassing the whole history of music." Stallings's more than forty years of experience - from her start with the bands of Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie to the undiluted passion of her solo recordings - shine through with every note. The New York Times says she's, "perhaps the best jazz singer alive today" and her latest HighNote recording offers ample proof. With the supremely gifted pianist, composer and arranger Eric Reed as Music Director, Stallings offers ten tunes that show the full range of her considerable talents. From bluesy swing to hushed seductive tones, Mary Stallings has it all.
