Ruth Olay is one of the many talented jazz vocalists who enjoyed a long and varied career on America's cabaret and night club scene during the 40s, 50s and 60s and she made a handful of great recordings during the LP era.
Presented here for your listening pleasure are the LPs 'Easy Living' which features the arrangements of the renowned Jerry Fielding and his orchestra and her debut solo release, 'Olay!'
This great CD set from Jasmine is an interesting release and contains several lush versions of earlier R&B hits like Benny Carter's 'Hurry-Hurry', which has featured vocals by Savanah Churchill; Ruth also performs another of Churchill's songs, a version of 'I Wanna Be Loved'.
This is a must have for fans of the jazz vocalists.
