Description by OLDIES.com:

Beginning as a novelty artist in the 1950's, Teresa Brewer soon eased into an acclaimed career as a jazz vocalist. Mercer Ellington and Count Basie direct the two stellar orchestras that accompany Ms. Brewer on these historic recordings on which she puts her own stamp on classics such as "Stormy Weather," "After You've Gone," and "Gimme A Pigfoot."
