A central figure in the great resurgence of African American music in the 1920's and 30's, Adelaide Hall was a jazz innovator, who performed with such jazz greats as Duke Ellington, Fats Waller and Art Tatum - all featured on this superbly re-mastered double CD. Creole Love Call, The Blues I Love To Sing, Minnie The Moocher, I Musy Have That Man, I'm In The Mood For Love, The Lady Is A Tramp, Begin The Beguine, Porgy, As Time Goes By and Sophisticated Lady are just some of the tracks included on this extraordinary compilation. Also included are her rare ENSA tracks - recorded for the troops during the second World War - and an even rarer recording she made in Berlin during the summer of 1936 which has never before been released.
