Probably the greatest cabaret artist of them all, Mabel Mercer can take some getting used to. Her queenly diction and comic Margaret Dumont-like delivery can be off-putting to listeners brought up on jazz. Unlike her great contemporary Lee Wiley, Mercer is not that personal a singer, either. Like an old-school psychoanalyst, the emotion she expresses through her unparalleled mastery of lyrics is that of her audience reflected back to itself.
The 1955 Atlantic LP MIDNIGHT AT MABEL MERCER'S is representative of the set she performed nightly in various rooms in post-war New York throughout the late '40s and' 50s, where her fans included Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner as well as Atlantic producer Ahmet Ertegun. While the psychologically deeper MABEL MERCER SINGS COLE PORTER remains the essential Mercer album, MIDNIGHT has the more varied set list and includes such highlights as the Comden-Green-Bernstein classics "Lucky To be Me" and "Some Other Time." ONCE IN A BLUE MOON (1956) offers a somewhat more obscure set of tunes though it does boast Mercer's classic rendition of "The Twelve Days Of Christmas" as well as Noel Coward's "If Love Was All."
