Mildred Bailey: The Rockin' Chair Lady - Her 52 Finest 1929-1947

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Here is the finest double CD available of one the greatest of all jazz singers. Washingtonian Mildred Rinker (1907-1951) took her first married name to become, as “Mildred Bailey”, the first truly great white jazz singer. In every way she was a big star; she was built on a huge scale, and she outsold all other jazz ladies of the 30s apart from Billie Holiday. Mildred Bailey was known as “The Rockin’ Chair Lady” after her great success with Hoagy’s Carmichael’s classic, and that provides the title for Retrospective’s tribute. Here are quite simply the 52 finest recordings she made, spanning from her first-ever disc in 1929 (What Kind O’ Man Is You?), through her golden years of the 30s to her full 1947 version of one of her key songs All Of Me.
