Seminal LPs By Peggy Lee And Others Join Verve’s Acoustic Sounds Vinyl Series

Three further seminal releases are today (29) added to Verve Records/UMe’s acclaimed Acoustic Sounds audiophile vinyl reissue series. They include titles by Clifford Brown & Max Roach, George Russell, and the Decca debut of Peggy Lee… Lee’s 1953 LP Black Coffee marked her arrival at Decca from Capitol, after her emergence in the big bands of the 1940s, notably in two years with Benny Goodman. It also followed her role in the 1952 remake of Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer, after the vocalist was enticed by producer Milt Gabler’s promise that she could record whatever she wanted.
