Lorez is great

At $11.99, the Impulse reissue of “Lorez Alexandria the Great” is like giving it away. Nice song selection, strong pipes exuding smoke and a crew behind her that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Jimmy Cobb on drums and Ray Crawford on guitar, among others. Judy Garland should have sung “Over the Rainbow” this way. Ditto Rex Harrison and “Get Me to the Church on Time.”
