221 Ladies of Jazz

A very nice and laid-back collection of players and singers from the last fifty years, all ladies performing in the jazz genre.  Assembled by Hugh, who reckons it’s one of his best, and the team agreed.


Described by Hugh as ‘Great vocal legends of the music up to the early sixties’
