Since her almost overnight rise to international sensation in 1957
with Dave Lambert and John Hendrick's in their recording "Sing
a Song of Basie" on ABC Paramount, Annie has worked all over
the world performing and recording vocal versions of jazz instrumentals
with the Basie Band, Zoot Sims, Louis Armstrong, Carmen McRae and
Dave Brubeck. Since 1962, however, Annie has been performing solo
extensively on stage and screen and has even found time to write
a cook book. Today, Ross conducts master classes at various esteemed
music schools in Europe and in the states. She's a vocalist who
comes from the inside of the music, stretching the intonation, rhythm
and mood of a song to make it memorable, personal and heartfelt.
Former jazz critic of The New York Times, John S. Wilson called
her, "a jazz singer without peer." Her most recent CD
is entitled Cool For Kids,
available here on Juniper.
