About

Am I Blue? offers a marvellous cross-section from the best of one of the finest of all jazz-styled vocalists, the pioneering Ethel Waters (1896-1977). Starting out as a blues/vaudeville singer (known as “Sweet Mama Stringbean”), the black American singer, entertainer, and later accomplished actress on stage and screen, became one of the era’s most accomplished and sensitive interpreters of popular songs. Essentially a jazz singer with a polished and smooth, blues-infected style, one of the best of her era, she knew how to extract the maximum from lyrics. This generous double album offers a gloriously satisfying summary of a dazzling career that brought her 26 record hits from pre-electric 1921 through to 1938, 20 of them included here.
