Flame Out!
Janet Blair (1921-2007) was a big-band singer who became a popular American film and television actress. The 1959 album “Flame Out!,” marked her first appearance on record since her days as vocalist with the Hal Kemp Orchestra in the 1940s. Janet’s naturally beautiful voice and great feel for the lyrics, brought new light to some of the best “heart songs” of her era. All musical scores were arranged and conducted by pianist Lou Busch, who had also been with the Kemp crew. Through the adept use of orchestral sounds, he managed to engineer a change of pace between songs. Some have a light, tonal modern jazz background in a Mancini-influenced style; others, a strikingly beautiful string sound; and still others employ the sparse feel of a “blues” piano and a lonesome trumpet blowing “out there somewhere.”

Goodbye to Love
The “voice you can’t forget” belongs to Claudia Thompson… it is haunting… misty… soul-searching. Claudia’s song styling—with the help of excellent control and breathless phrasing—weaves a spell of bittersweet love. She sings cleanly with good diction, and she’s capable of creating and sustaining a mood effectively. Her ballad singing is always warm and knowing, and she handles them with tenderness and restraint. Her talents combine smoothly with the effective accompaniment of such jazzmen as Barney Kessel, Red Mitchell and Benny Carter, who do much to enhance the album’s appeal and form an excellent frame for the singer. This is an unforgettable listening experience.
