Ivie Anderson was Duke Ellington's star female vocalist from 1935 to 1942. Unlike most other Anderson compilations, Jasmine's I Got It Good & That Ain't Bad combines her best Ellington sides with mature work from as late as 1946. The selection is uncommonly excellent, and focuses upon this singer's most dignified performances by avoiding some of Tin Pan Alley's more hackneyed material, for like the majestic Adelaide Hall and Edward Kennedy Ellington himself, Anderson had a lot of class. Here at last is a retrospective that portrays her at her very best. ~ arwulf arwulf
