Editorial Reviews

If you were to leaf through all the material written about Jeri Southern in the past five years or so by record reviewers, night club critics, newspaper columnists and others, you would notice a constant recurrence of such words as delicacy, sensitivity, taste, subtlety and restraint. If you find these qualities admirable, then it's a fine experience you have in store as you listen to these lyrical little milestones in Miss Southern's recording career. On some of them she sounds very close to tears, on others she sounds wise and profound and perhaps just a bit cynical. Sometimes she seems like a wistful little girl, and the next minute she's silken and sultry and seductive. The moods are many and complex, and they are all Jeri Southern's. They are all yours too, to share with her here in this album.

This CD re-issues Jeri Southern's finest session "You Better Go Now" which was originally released on Decca, now only available on this exellent import CD, also included is "When You're Hearts On Fire" another Decca LP, so you really get two LP's on one CD. However the main reason to get this enjoyable CD is for the songs from the "You Better Go Now" session, which include "The Man That Got Away" "Dancing On The Ceiling" "When I Fall In Love" "That Old Devil Called Love" "Give Me Time" and "Something I Dreamed Last Night" are just a few of the highlights from this CD. For those unfamiliar with Southern's talents as a vocalist/pianist. She was a jazz based piano playing singer, very unlike Blossom Dearie(however they both had soft voices). Southern's vocal style is more like Peggy Lee's(however, she's not on the same level as Lee) but it's an unfair comparison, because she's unique. She was a favorite of other jazz musicians and singers like Miles Davis & Mel Torme who listed her as a favorite singer. Very much like Lee Wiley in the 30's/40's was a favorite of Eddie Condon, and Jess Satcy. She's one of those rare singers who sings the lyrics with a jazz phrasing like Sinatra. However she really didn't improvise in her singing, as much as she did in her paino playing. This CD will give you a good overview of this wonderful singer. Also get Jeri Southern Meets Cole Porter with Billy May & His Orch.

Format: Audio CD
Jeri is the best torch singer there has ever been - and there have been many excellent ones down the years. Of Jeri's contemporaries, Polly Bergen, Julie London, Gogi Grant and Peggy Lee are the ones that spring immediately to mind. I love them all and I have most of their music. They were generally more versatile than Jeri. Peggy, in particular, could pick up the tempo to great effect when she chose to. Jeri could never do that - her style was altogether too intimate and understated. And that's exactly why she was the best torch singer of them all - and still is, even though she has long since left us.
Jeri didn't try to do the upbeat stuff. There were, and are, plenty of others for that. When rock'n'roll took over the charts, Jeri simply carried on as if nothing had happened. When record companies put pressure on her to change, she resisted - and eventually quit the business. Jeri knew what she could do, and stuck to it. This twofer is an excellent example of Jeri's music.
Many of these songs have become classics, though it is usually other singers who are identified with these songs. When I fall in love was originally a hit for Doris Day, and later a much bigger hit for Nat King Cole. I love both those singers and I enjoy their versions. I've also heard many other excellent versions, but none of them can match Jeri. Smoke gets in your eyes dates from the 1930's although most people remember the rock'n'roll cover by the Platters. I love that version and (even better) I love Margaret Whiting's lovely romantic version on her Jerome Kern tribute album. I call her Magic Maggie, and for very good reason. Yet, even she could not match Jeri's version of the song, although she came very close.

This is probably my favourite of the CDs that couple two of Jeri Southern's LPs from the 1950s - here, from 1956 and 1957, respectively. The first LP is a compilation of tracks Jeri recorded with a number of different orchestras - Tutti Camarata, Victor Young, Sy Oliver, Sonny Burke, Norman Leyden and Lew Douglas. It contains some of her best-known recordings: `You better go now', `Alec Wilder's `Give me time', Victor Young's `When I fall in love' with his orchestra and a piano solo by Jeri, `I thought of you last night' and `The man that got away'. In the second LP transfer, Jeri is accompanied throughout by Tutti Camarata and his orchestra. Again, some classic Jeri Southern vocals here on such standards as `Smoke gets in your eyes', `Can I forget you' (both by Jerome Kern), `I remember you', `Autumn in New York' and `Someone to watch over me'. I have picked out some of the best-known melodies and performances but Jeri is in good voice throughout and all the backings seem to me to be fitting for the song.

Excellent combination of two very good Jeri Southern albums
Good mood music mainly slow songs but well sung and a good example of 50's vocalists.
Also very good value!
