Peggy Lee

Peggy Lee’s 1953 Black Coffee album will forever remain a masterpiece of vocal jazz. With such a seminal release, she stood to define an era.


  • Dream Street (1957) B+
    • Crafted, conducted by and cuckolded with Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee’s Dream Street is largely the creation of another man. Yet her sophisticated persona shines through, especially in the mysterious title track, a career highlight.
