4.0 out of 5 stars A female Sinatra? March 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I encountered the name of Lucy Reed for the first time a year ago while exploring the early recording activity of pianist Bill Evans, before the great trio with LaFaro and Motian. A friend familiar with the Chicago musical scene in the 1950s filled me in a bit on her, recalling her as a mesmerizing, unique, highly intelligent singer who worked Chicago clubs for a while but had dreams of going to better places. From the evidence of her 2 or 3 recordings, I can understand why trying to entertain listeners in saloons, frequently close to empty, or full of tourists looking for a bit of fast action, must have been frustrating. She's one of the more innovative, risk-taking, challenging female vocalists I've heard--not because of some quasi-vocal improvisatory free jazz or deliberately experimental, avant garde approach but because she affords a level of "entertainment" reflective of Sinatra's artistry at its best--the Master Storyteller at his least compromising on the Capitol ballad albums with arrangements by Nelson Riddle and Gordon Jenkins.

This is not escapist, happy-time music, even when she's doing familiar standards. "Suicide songs," "wrist-slashers"--that's what Sinatra called the thematically-sequenced programs, or "tone poems," of albums like "Only the Lonely," "In the Wee Small Hours," "No One Cares," "Close to You," and "September of My Years." He looked at the darkest corners implicit in those songs and never flinched, all the while shedding light on the secret life of human desire, loneliness, mental and emotional ennui.

This eponymous album, which I came upon serendipitously while combing through the Art Farmer catalog, is misleading if the prospective listener expects merely an introduction to a new singer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure vocal magic by a first class Jazz singer! May 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Lucy Reed was/is one of the most fantastic, yet underrated singers of them all. She sang with Charlie Ventura's band and recorded two 45 singles for the Chance label (with Chuck Sagle's orchestra) in the early 50s. Her two albums she recorded between 1955 and 1957 (the other one is "The Singing Reed") are pure vocal magic with an instrument unmatched by most of her contemporaries. Jeri Southern used to name her as her favourte singer. She was a highly acclaimed artist around the Chicago area and never gained the recognition she deserved. She recorded another great album in the 90s, called "Basic Reeding" (with Herb Ellis and Ray Brown) which again shows her artistry. She died in 1998. Buy anything you can by the great Lucy Reed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Little Known Canary March 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a recording by a lesser known singer from Chicago with a very unique style and approach. Her career was limited due to refusing to tour while her was growing up.
Check out her bizarre (yet cool) approach to Porter's "Love for Sale."
