For many years, Abbey Lincoln has been recognized as a strong and strong-minded, racially aware and rhythmically secure artist. But early in her career - as a striking-looking young woman making the transition from being a sleek supper-club performer - it was difficult to gain acceptance as a true jazz singer. This seems hard to understand now, listening to her treatments of material by such as Duke Ellington and Kurt Weill, accompanied by a galaxy of players (who always knew her worth) like Max Roach, Wynton Kelly, Cedar Walton, Kenny Dorham, Stanley Turrentine, Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones.
