Anita O’Day closed out her extraordinary tenure at Verve with one last venture into new territory. This time she chose for her backing band the Three Sounds, a young trio led by Gene Harris. The Three Sounds were a lean, groovy group — very “with it.” They would soon be among a subset of Blue Note groups that would pioneer the R&B-jazz hybrid known as “soul jazz.” Their collaboration with O’Day has the kind of chemistry that can only come from an unlikely pairing. The burgeoning Afro-African trio from Chicago meets the white songstress in decline — and yet everyone involved speaks the same language.
