Abbey Lincoln: Golden Lady (CD: Inner City)
Abbey Lincoln's follow-up album to 'People in Me' retained her wise and somewhat defiant attitude, while expressing deep-seated feelings of womanhood, personal growth, and freedom. The band features saxophonist Archie Shepp, trumpeter Roy Burrowes, drummer Freddie Waits, bassist Jack Gregg, and the exceptional pianist Hilton Ruiz joining Shepp, Burrowes, and Lincoln. HJighlights include interpretations of Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady," a melancholy version of Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady", and a nearly ten-minute take of Michel Legrand's "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life"? During this late-'70s/early-'80s period, Lincoln-Moseka asserted herself in ways that made her stand out from the crowded arena of female jazz vocalists, and -- as always -- she had something to say to society. Golden Lady should be considered as one of her best albums. (Discovery Records)

Abbey Lincoln: Sophisticated Abbey- Live At The Keystone Korner (CD: Highnote)Abbey Lincoln: Sophisticated Abbey- Live At The Keystone Korner (CD: Highnote)
Few singers have the emotional depth and versatility of Abbey Lincoln. With a voice capable of evoking the joys and pains of life, she has carved a niche as a singer, songwriter, and storyteller for over 40 years. As a singer, she avoided grandstanding and rarely, if ever, improvised; she did, however, wring a lyric for its emotional content, while bringing a searing, dramatic quality to the musical line. Early in her career her rich, sustained contralto register - sometimes pierced by sudden impassioned cries - echoed the style of her idol Billie Holiday; in turn it inspired a generation of younger artists such as Cassandra Wilson. The 1970s and 80s found Lincoln recording only sporadically and there is precious little documentation of her art from this period, making these live recordings from 1980 rare treasures indeed.
