Description

This essential LP release contains Franklins magnificent debut album for Columbia, Aretha (1961), featuring a series of All Star groups conducted by pianist Ray Bryant. Producer John Hammond followed the formula he once prescribed for his discovery Billie Holiday: standards and blues with a jazz rhythm section plus horns and head charts. Per Hammond, there was an almost complete absence of arrangements for the LP. Ironically, there was no Ray Bryant Combo; as Bryant once declared that his combo was invented for the album. Featuring a virtual whos who of fabulous musicians from the East Coast jazz scene, including Tyree Glenn, Osie Johnson, Milt Hinton, Al Sears and Ray Bryant himself, among others. Arethas tracks reveal a sweet, even coy insouciance on songs like Right Now, and alternatively, a roof-raising belt on Sweet Lover. In addition to the original album, this limited collectors edition contains 4 bonus tracks from the same period: I Apologize, Its So Heartbreakin, Dont Cry, Baby, and Rock-A-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody. It serves as the best introduction for anyone wanting to explore Lady Souls first steps. This is the material upon which Arethas soul kingdom and unique personal style were built.
