Jefferson, Eddie – “Letter From Home ” – [Riverside]

Ernie Wilkins??? arrangements show off the many fine instrumentalists in these classic jazz vocals recorded in the early 1960???s. Jefferson???s fine singing reflects his background as a horn player.

About Eddie Jefferson:
??? Credited with inventing ???vocalese???, a style of jazz singing where lyrics are put to songs that were originally all-instrumental. Uses words rather than nonsense syllables, like scat.
??? Was shot and killed in 1979 as he left Baker???s Lounge in Detroit.
