One of the rarest albums in jazz vocalist Lorez Alexandria's catalog, FOR SWINGERS ONLY was originally released in 1963 on the Argo label and, here, finally gets its CD debut. With a program mixing renowned and lesser-known standards, SWINGERS finds Alexandria in a sultry, soulful mood, backed by some of Chicago's finest jazz players of the period. (While pianist John Young is something of a Windy City legend, the bassist here is Jimmy Garrison, best known for his long tenure with the John Coltrane Quartet.) For those yearning to hear Ms. A in an intimate setting, FOR SWINGERS is essential.
