Editorial Reviews

Annette Hanshaw, along with Ruth Etting was one of the major female singers of the 1920s. This particular disc has a great selection of songs, beginning with a few from 1926 including the very popular "Black Bottom", running through selections from 1927, rounding off with a few from 1928. Taken the date of these tracks, the sound quality of these recordings are brilliant. So if you want to hear Annette Hanshaw, backed by some fine musicians, and ending most of the songs with her catchphrase "That's All", then this is the one for you. Highly recommended.

Since the Gramophone review posted on this site seems more concerned with Miss Hanshaw's financial status and her backup band, it may be worth mentioning that Hanshaw captured, better than any other vocalist of her era, the Jazz Age. She has a plaintive, wistful quality which you won't find in any other vocalist of the period. Her diction is pure and clear and her phrasing is impeccable.The selections on this CD present some of her finest work. WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE A WALK? is the definitive recording of this delightful flapper era novelty song. FIT AS A FIDDLE is a perfect combination of vocalist, melody, lyrics and accompaniment ~ it's the best version of this song you'll ever hear. MOON SONG and LITTLE WHITE LIES demonstrate Hanshaw's considerable gifts for ballad singing. BIG CITY BLUES, THE RIGHT KIND OF MAN and THAT'S YOU, BABY are all in Hanshaw's best tempo ~ midway between blues and hot jazz. The classic songs in the set, BODY AND SOUL and LET'S FALL IN LOVE, are rendered with surprising power and poignance. YOU WOULDN'T FOOL ME, WOULD YOU? showcases yet another facet of Hanshaw's vocal abilities: her near-perfect Helen Kane 'boop boop a doop' impersonation. HO HUM!, a parody of the 'june spoon moon' songs of the period, may be one of the wittiest recordings of the era.
Tommy Dorsey, then a session player on a number of Annette Hanshaw recordings, once said that Annette Hanshaw was a musician's singer. That's a high compliment from Dorsey, who went to coach another young vocalist named Frank Sinatra. Buy this wonderful CD and find out for yourself how brilliant this great forgotten vocalist really is.

Annette Hanshaw was just about the only female vocalist(not including classic blues moaners like Bessie Smith) that was really singing jazz in the 20's, the only other was Ethel Waters. Hanshaw would improvise, scat, and swing, backed by only the finest jazz musicians of the time, and since Hanshaw came from a wealthy family and was already quite wealthy herself, she could hire the finest jazz players like Manny Klein, Joe Venuti, The Memphis Five, Dorsey Brothers, and essentailly had the same backup groups that the Boswell Sisters had, in the 30's. Due to Hanshaw's wealth she did not have to record pop tunes like Ruth Etting, or Kate Smith, she chose herself what she would record so it's all jazz, and in fun. She retired in the early 30's unfortionately. This CD is a nice overview of her recordings from the 20's. Highly recommended.

An excellent compilation of her earliest work. In spite of the limitations inherent in the audio equipment of the day, the clarity of her voice comes through extremely well. The musicianship throughout the album is first rate. If one is looking for a superb example of the kind of sound that the best female vocalists of the twenties were capable of, this collection of early Annette Hanshaw provides it.

I discovered Annette Hanshaw about 3 years ago, and instantaneously fell in love with her vocals. Annette was a consummate perfectionist and a very shy person, and these attributes of her personality beam through her music. She has a voice that is slightly timid, but tremendously complex and intriguing. She also nails her stylistic interpretation of each song while still allowing her musicians to stand out. No, her voice can't break glass, and the sound quality of the songs may not be astounding (most were recorded almost 80 years ago), but this is still a worthwhile album. Annette broke a lot of ground as a singer, and introduced the public at large to an "acceptable" form of Jazz, paving the way for those who would go after her. Standouts on this album are "The Song Is Ended" and "Here or There." Both are very strong. "Who-Oo? You-Oo, That's Who!" is a fun song that is reflective of the flapper style. "Under The Moon" is a ballad, one of my favorites from Annette, as she flaunts her vocal range...well over three octaves in the song. This album isn't for everyone, but for people who can appreciate older music and different vocal styles, this is a gem of a record. The Sensation Records (Vol 5, 6, 7) are also quite good.

Before I discovered this album, I had never heard of Annette Hanshaw and I am 59 years old. Probably anyone under 70 or 80 wouldn't remember her that well or maybe not at all. She is just a pure joy to listen to and has such a relaxed, pleasant sounding voice. Her voice is not powerful, but strong enough to deliver all the songs well. It's also not the babyish sound that you get from someone like Helen Kane. The sound quality was somewhat flat and slightly muffled, but when you consider the age of these recordings and the fact that they were undoubtedly originally recorded in monophonic, the quality is remarkable. A couple of the songs had more noise than others, but mostly they have been well restored and one couldn't expect much better. Just be aware you aren't going to get sharp, clear sound that you would from more modern recordings. This is a real collector's item of great 20's music. The habit she has of saying "That's All!" at the end of a number of songs was delightful to me, even after I heard it a number of times, but some might find it annoying after a few times.
