A Girl In Calico - Helen Merrill - Music Makers (CD, Album)


  1. 6. Music Makers 7. Laura 8. As Time Goes By 9. A Girl In Calico Solitude Lady Be Good Nuages Personnel Helen Merrill (vocals) Steve Lacy (soprano saxophone) Stephane Grappelli (violin) Gordon Beck (piano, electric piano).
  2. Two albums in one CD. The first album features, but not strongly, Clifford Brown with Quincy Jones arranging is, not surprisingly, excellent. What came a s surprise to me was the "with Strings" album. This is a great piece of work. Many times jazz with strings comes off as. IMO, too sweet but not this one/5(18).
  3. For her last major label work in , Jelena Ana Milcactic A.K.A. Helen Merrill, recorded music based upon her Croatian heritage; it was quite a project but somehow eluded me. Music Makers is a reissue of a session, originally on Sunnyside, with two unusual trios.

  5. AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow This is an unusual album, for it features the always flexible singer Helen Merrill and keyboardist Gordon Beck on six trios apiece with either soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy or violinist Stephane Grappelli.
  6. Highlights include "'Round Midnight" and "When Lights Are Low" (both of which include Lacy) and "A Girl In Calico" and "Lady Be Good" with Grappelli. Recorded Personnel: Helen Merrill - vocals, Stephane Grappelli - violin, Steve Lacy - soprano saxophone, Gordon Beck - piano electric, piano/5(4).
  7. This four-LP box set, whose contents have been partly reissued on CD, has all of singer Helen Merrill's output for Mercury; only two selections for the Roost label in precede these definitive recordings. Merrill, whose warm voice was always both distinctive and flexible, could hold her own with the best jazz musicians of the era.
