Original 1959 Album Plus Bonus Tracks!

1959's Beauty and the Beat! finds Peggy Lee and the Gerge Shearing Quintet performing together for the first time in a spectacular concert recorded during the Disc Jockey Convention in Miami, FL in April of that year. Miss Lee, in a shimmering gown, was as beautiful to see as she was to hear. And she, Shearing, and Co. swung handsomely through tune after tune with a spontaneous beat felt by all. The Quintet played with spirit and taste in support of the famous Shearing piano lead - both in instrumental numbers and in the inventive vocal backings.

And Lee sang as though she didn't have a care in the world other than her interpretations, which included quite a variety of ballad and uptempo stylings. Her treatment of "I Lost My Sugar In Salt Lake City" was sultry and insinuating. Ellington's beautiful "All Too Soon" emerged lush and dreamy, and she breezed delightfully through an "up" version of "If Dreams Come True." The instrumentals by Shearing and his quintet included an original penned for the occasion by conga drummer Armando Peraza, entitled "Mambo in Miami" while "Satin Doll" and "Isn't it Romantic?" showed off the free-swinging precision of the group.

Vinyl pressing from Vinyl Passion complete with the three bonus tracks "You Deserve," "I'm Lookin' Out The Window" and "Hallellujah, I Love Him So."
