Format: Audio CD
King Pleasure is a much lesser known than his old rival Eddie Jefferson, and the debate continues today over who actually wrote the famous lyrics to "I'm in the Mood for Love" (aka "Moody's Mood" aka the "there I go there I go there I go" song), although EJ's version is the one that was hugely popular in the 50s and featured on a Gap ad back in the early 90s.
This album includes two versions of that song, as well as a vocalese rendition of "That Old Black Magic" called "Diaper Pin" which contains the clever wordplay used in the title of this review. This is simply a must-have for any fan of vocal jazz.
One note on the Freestyle Fellowship reference below:
I think the reviewer has a valid point. Vocalese is produced by taking popular instrumental jazz solos and using them as melodies for new lyrics, while Freestyle Fellowship was one of the first hip-hop groups to incorporate improvised melodies into their rap lyrics, some of which are improvised (freestyle) themselves. So I think that was a wonderful connection to make.

I wouldn't call this guy a psycho, nor do I think of Freestyle Fellowship when I hear him (see other review), but I do agree that he is one of the jazz world's most underrated singers. This album contains many classics, but my personal favorite will always be "Don't Get Scared", a great duo with Jon Hendricks. He does not possess a great voice, though it IS good, but does have an extraordinary ability to swing. A classic.

This collection picks up where his Prestige And HI-Fi Recordings left off. You get not only his Long-Out-Of-Print 1962 album entitled "Mr. Jazz" presented in it's entirety! In STEREO!, but 1 (One) Unreleased recording, Plus 8 Tracks released only
on 78's And 45's making they're appearence on Compact Disc for the first time!, Thus giving you a total of 18 (Eighteen) slices of pure musical delight...Who could ask for more? Upon hearing this Disc, Plus his other recordings you'll quickly hear where several jazz vocalist picked up on his vocal style...And ran with it!

I was so pleased to find this CD at Amazon. I used to have King Pleasure on an LP many years ago and always loved King Pleasure's version of Moody's Mood For Love. I used to play it over and over until I learned all the words; not an easy task! I highly recommend this CD to anyone who is into that era of Jazz. Thanks MovieMars and Amazon!

Robert Wallace(The Treasure-House of the Soul on Kindle) says: Supremely confident, highly romantic, the vocal stylings of King Pleasure are a treat. The musicians sound great as the music ranges from blues, bebop, swing and jazz ballads. The back-up singers
add a lot of energy and verve to the proceedings as well. Vocalese seems to me to be a quite logical development of bebop as applied to singing and I find I prefer it to scat. As a side note, one of my reasons for picking up this cd is that Van Morrison has cited King Pleasure as a major influence on his seminal album Astral Weeks and I was curious to see what the connection was. I don't truthfully hear a great connection but I would say if you listen to VM's vocals with Them and also on the Bang sessions(recordings that preceded AW) it seems that the main influence is the warmer and softer nuances in the vocals. Morrison later went on to do a creditable version of Moody's Mood on Too Long in Exile. Hey, my side note is longer than the main review--sorry 'bout that!

This album is a must, for all who claim to be Jazz heads. A true American Classic. A timeless hit, reminds me of the old days in Jersey, when Franky Crocker Had his late show comming out of NEW YORK. Mood for love would close the show. Man how we loved those days. Johnny Rivera

Great album from a master of the vocalese style of singing.
The highpoint of the album is "I'm In The Mood For Love" - older New York City residents may recall it as Frankie Crocker's sign-off song.
The recordings sound great and there's not a bad cut on the album.
