Panassie's one of the greatest female singers in Jazz, her cheerful style was always a joy to hear equally versatile on blues, swing standards or ballads. These 55 minutes collects her complete and chronological Black & White-Mercury studio sessions from 1946 to 1949.
Fresh small format recordings with superb Buck Clayton's arrangements plus highlighted appearances by Teddy Wilson, Edmond Hall, John Hardee, Ram Ramirez, Mundell Lowe & Jo Jones.
