Verve Unmixed, Vol. 3

Verve Unmixed, Vol. 3



The companion piece to the third volume of Verve's mix CD series, this disc features the unmixed, untouched original versions of songs found in remix form on Verve Remixed, Vol. 3. Focusing less on groove-oriented songs featured in previous editions, this time around the disc salutes the ladies of jazz. Some of the greatest names in the history of vocal jazz make appearances here. Billie Holiday makes two appearances with "Speak Low" and "Yesterdays," as does Sarah Vaughan with "Peter Gunn" and "Fever." Nina Simone, Anita O'Day, Shirley Horn, and Astrud Gilberto also make appearances, along with jazz legends Hugh Masekela and Jimmy Smith. While Unmixed, Vol. 3 is by no means a greatest-hits compilation for the Verve imprint, it is a quality survey of one of the most important bodies of work in the history of jazz.
