Capitol's Great Ladies of Song series provides a fine introduction to the classic jazz vocals of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Brimming with talent, the label mostly stayed true to such vocalists as Nancy Wilson, Peggy Lee, June Christy, and Dakota Staton. Staton was the odd one out here in the popularity stakes, which was certainly not due to the caliber of her singing. This Great Ladies disc proves the point with 18 gems from her prime 1957-1961 stretch. Including the title track hit from her great debut album, The Late, Late Show, the collection gathers together highlights from most of her Capitol releases. And adding plenty of ideal backdrops, arrangers and accompanists Benny Carter, George Shearing, and Sid Feller provide an added touch of class. A great place for Staton newcomers to get familiar with all the singer's charms.
