Ann Hampton Callaway Explores the Music and Songwriting of Peggy Lee

“Singer and songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway has been listening to the songs and music of Peggy Lee for as long as she can remember. ‘She was playing on the turntable when I was born,’ she said. ‘There was a lot of Peggy Lee going on there.’ In 2003 she was invited to perform at a concert at Carnegie Hall saluting the legendary singer and songwriter and thereafter became friends with Lee’s daughter and granddaughter. The family opened their archive to Callaway who was inspired to record an album of songs written by or associated with Ms. Lee, entitled Fever: A Peggy Lee Celebration.” [Source: Lee Mergner, WBGO]
