Anita Sings the Most

Artist: Anita O’Day

Year: 1957

Genre: Vocal Jazz

Grade: A-

Compared to her contemporaries — Dinah Washington, Julie London, Helen Merrill, Peggy Lee, to name a few — Anita O’Day has more charisma than all of them combined. Playing with the Oscar Peterson Quartet, O’Day’s voice bends and stretches in perfect harmony with the music. Her timing is impeccable.
