Peggy Lee

Es ist bisher noch niemandem gelungen, an Peggy Lee vorbeizukommen. Die größten Autoren und Komponisten verneigen sich vor dieser Künstlerin, die es geschafft hat, sich über 20 Jahre einen festen Platz unter den Größen des amerikanischen Showgeschäfts zu erhalten. Norma Deloris Egstrom, so ihr bürgerlicher Name, selbst Komponistin, arbeitet gern mit ihren Kollegen zusammen. So sind unter ihren Stammautoren Stars wie James Taylor, Henri Mancini, Irving Berlin und zahllose andere zu finden.

Bestens bekannt in den USA ist Peggy Lee nicht nur als Sängerin und Plattenmillionärin, sondern auch als Schauspielerin in Filmen und Fernsehstücken. Besonders für ihre Darstellung einer alkoholsüchtigen Bluessängerin gab es Preise. Derzeit arbeitet Peggy Lee an der Verfilmung des Lebens von Claude Debussy. Für ihre neueste Langspielplatte suchte sie.sich wiederum prominenten Beistand: So schrieb ihr Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney den Titelsong „Let's Love', bei dessen Produktion er auch mitwirkte. Darüber hinaus zeigte Peggy Lee auch Ambitionen in Richtung Malerei, Dichtung und Bildhauerei. Das keineswegs nur im stillen Kämmerlein, nein, durchaus anerkannt. Sie wurde vom Stadtrat von Los Angeles und der Amerikanischen Föderation der Musiker für kulturelle und karitative Verdienste ausgezeichnet.

Peggy Lee

Every Night

In 1957, after a five-year stint with Decca, Peggy Lee returned 'home' to Capitol Records, where she had spent the first seven years of her solo career. Rock 'n' roll was chugging right along in April of that year, which is when Peggy cut Every Night, an R&B tune co-written by singer-songwriter-producer Ed Townsend. (Ed would go on to have a Capitol hit of his own (For Your Love, # 13, 1958) and, even later, co-write Let's Get It On with Marvin Gaye in 1973).

Nelson Riddle conducts the combo on Every Night which features sizzling electric guitar splashes, some Johnny Johnson-inspired piano work, a solid-shuffle rhythm section, doo-wopping male back-up singers and a wailing sax solo from Plas Johnson. Peggy doesn't let things get away on her though. She commands center-stage, delivering a solid, casually soulful, confident vocal over top of the rock 'n' roll ruckus. You know who is in charge of this performance: Miss Peggy Lee

A little over a year later, in May, 1958, Peggy revived Little Willie John's 1956 #24 hit, Fever, which would turn out to be one of her biggest, most enduring records.
