5.0 out of 5 stars It's About Time... December 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This compilation is of two of the three albums, Marian,

later known as Marion, but always really known as "Pepe"

cut for Capital in the mid 60"s. Only the album "Swings

for Winners and Losers" (perhaps her best work) is not

included here and fans of her work, will have to wonder

why, with two cd discs this should have been an easy task.

Fans of MM should be on the lookout for her last recorded

task, "Lady from Natchez" on the Audiophile label. Copies

will be hard to find but worth the search.

3.0 out of 5 stars Marian Montogermy - Jazz Singer Extrodinaire! April 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
"Marian Swings for Winners and Losers" is probably the only album that is worth searching the world over for. It was her first US effort with Cal Tjader, Kenny Burrell to name just two of the expert musicians on this sitting on this music event. If you can get your hands on this out of print LP (have not seen it issued on CD) you've got some of the best jazz vocal work ever done and that includes Ella. The musicians and Marian's voice were like one and that is a rare occurence. After her death I contacted her husband and he sent me a cd copy from the original studio engineered tape. After that, any other pales in comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars She Really Swings July 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have two copies of the original LP "Swings for Winners and Losers" and I've made dozens of CDs for my friends....they all loved it. I've had this album for 50 years, buying it originally when I was 16 (I was into jazz at a young age). Before she went to England, she appeared on Johnny Carson and was brilliant. She is without a doubt the best jazz singer I've ever heard, not only her voice but also her interpretation. However, the albums she made after "Swings for Winners and Losers" were disappointments.

1.0 out of 5 stars Let There Be Quiet September 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is actually two albums in one. The first is incredibly bad. Why anyone, even back in the early 60s would start off a studio album with Bill Bailey is completely beyond me. It is an insipid song that should be used only as filler for a live performance. Montgomery, with her rhythmic insanity, made me feel as if someone were shooting at me with a nail gun. Then there is the exaggerated nasal delivery. Awful!!! Even though Montgomery's singing on the second album improves tremendously, the arrangements are horrible with their relentless, organ-driven "swing." This album should definitely be among the first sent to the surface of the sun.
