Lizzy Miles

"To me I sing love songs—sad songs—torchy songs better. Guess it's because I had such a hard, sad life from as far back as I can remember is why." Cryin' songs and dyin' songs are the substance of Creole Songbird Lizzy Miles' musical outpourings. Pianist Red Camp, banjoist Albert French and Tony Almerico's Parisian Room Band outpour right along with her in this late recording. And so we hear this scintillating blend of outpourings when "Mama don't allow no clarinet playin' in here...but Tony don't care what Mama don't allow, he's gonna play that clarinet anyhow."
