MOORE Marilyn 1957

Performing in public should feel comfortable to Marilyn. Her parents, vaudevillians, had her performing on stage at the age of four. Later, an Oklahoma City high school furnished the proper setting to bring music into focus. Jazz singing became her life at that time. Marilyn was built "paying her dues" when Charlie Barnett found her. She sang with the band for nearly a year. After the Barnett stint, Marilyn took a four year leave of absence from music to become Mrs Al Cohn and start a family. This record marks her return.
Moore's voice is sweet honey and cream. Al Cohn plays tenor sax and bass clarinet, helped by Don Abney, Joe Wilder, Barry Galbraight, Milt Hinton and Osie Johnson. "Moody Marilyn Moore" was recorded in 1957. This is her only recording session.

Don't miss this sugar...
