Newstalgia Downbeat featuring Jazz Greats Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, live at The Park Hotel, Bremen Germany - April 23, 1962.
A legendary Jazz Vocal group this week. Lambert, Hendricks and Ross virtually redefined the role singing took in the idiom of Jazz. Taking elements of Scat and Human Orchestra and coming up with a combination that was a flat-out hit from the start. Lambert, Hendricks and Ross rode the crest of a very popular wave all through the 1950's until late 1962 when Annie Ross left the group to pursue a solo career, leaving Dave Lambert and Jon Hendricks to carry on with another singer before finally hanging it up in 1964.
This concert, recorded at The Park Hotel in Bremen, Germany and broadcast over Radio Bremen on April 23, 1962 most likely marks some of their last recorded live performances as the original lineup of the group and is probably one of their last broadcasts. They are backed by The Gildo Mahones Trio, another legendary outfit.
