Abbey Lincoln - Abbey Is Blue (2006) Retail CD
Abbey Lincoln is not one of the best known of jazz singers. Whereas Ella, Billie and Sarah find their way into most record collections. Abbey remains obscure. Perhaps this is due to the political nature of many of her songs or the more experimental nature of her later work, but whatever the reason it is grossly unfair on a great talent. Hers is a voice gravely and emotive like Billie Holiday's and when she is singing you know she means every single word. Abbey Is Blue is one of the truly great jazz albums, featuring a host of class musicians (Stanley Turrentine, Kenny Dorham and Max Roach to namemore… but three). The haunting pained "Afro-Blue" starts the set, which includes her own aching "Let Up" and Oscar Brown's lament to black ghetto life, "Brother, Where Are You?" This is an album of honesty, which shows that songs with a serious content don't have to be boring, but can be truly lovely to hear. Throughout the set the songs are top quality, the musicians ditto and Abbey's voice is all but perfect. --Phil Brett
