• Pearl BAILEY - Ain't She Sweet!: 23 Of Her Greatest Recordings

Although it was not Pearl Bailey's lot in life to be a huge commercial success in terms of record sales and international acclaim, like her peer Ella Fitzgerald, she was nevertheless a very classy singer with a large stage presence. Indeed, it would not be unfair to Ella to say Pearl had the greater personality, but whether by luck or ill health, Miss Bailey never quite achieved the dizzy heights of Miss Fitzgerald. One strange coincidence linked them: they were both born in Newport News, Virginia, in 1918 - Pearl on 29th March, Ella less than a month later.
