Product Notes

Dakota Staton was a jazz and R&B singer very much in the mould of Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington, whose style was sultry and sophisticated but who was extrovert and funky enough to share an R&B stage with the likes of Fats Domino and Big Joe Turner. She paid her dues on the jazz club circuit before signing to Capitol and released a number of singles and claimed Down Beat magazine's Most Promising Newcomer award before recording her No. 4 hit album "The Late, Late Show" in 1957. This great-value 57-track 2-CD set comprises all her recordings released as singles from her debut in 1955, along with all the tracks from her first four albums "The Late, Late Show", "In The Night", "Dynamic" and "Crazy He Calls Me". It features performances with some noted musicians and arrangers, including Nelson Riddle, George Shearing, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Jonah Jones, Hank Jones, Van Alexander, Toots Thielemans and Al McKibbon. It's a comprehensive presentation of her studio work during the first and probably most significant era in her career, and a great showcase for the talent of a noted vocal stylist.
