About Annie Ross

Annie Ross (born 1930) is a jazz singer and actress, best known as a member of the trio Lambert, Hendricks & Ross. Ross is one of the early practitioners of a singing style known as vocalese, which involves the setting of original lyrics to an instrumental jazz solo. Her 1952 treatment of saxophonist Wardell Gray's "Twisted" is a classic example of vocalese. "Twisted" is perhaps her most famous song. She recorded seven albums with Lambert, Hendricks & Ross between 1957 and 1962. Read more on Last.fm.
