The very first cool, blonde, sexy and happening female singer-songwriter, opening the door for everyone from Jackie De Shannon to Gwen Stefani, it’s Miss Peggy Lee! Originally the featured vocalist in the Benny Goodman Big Band in the 1940s, the lovely Miss Lee launched a series of solo hits in 1942 beginning with her first # 1, ‘Somebody Else Is Taking My Place’, followed by 1943’s ‘Why Don’t You Do Right?’
which sold over a million copies and secured her fame! Many more hits followed for the next umpteen years, of which many were self-penned.

Her many songwriting collaborators, in addition to husband/guitarist Dave Barbour, included such notable as Laurindo Almeida, Harold Arlen, Sonny Burke, Cy Coleman, Duke Ellington, Dick Hazard, Quincy Jones, Marian McPartland, Lalo Schifrin, Hubie Wheeler, and Victor Young, to name just a few!

On this collection we focus on her hits, of the 1940s and 1950s. The sexy, bluesy and assured tones of the woman who brought you such heart-stopping moments as ‘Fever’ and ‘Is That All There Is?’
