Appearing on CD for the first time, two 1960 albums from the jazz stylist Dakota Staton with two additional bonus tracks!

Winner of Down Beat magazine's "Most Promising Newcomer Award" in 1955, jazz vocalist Dakota Staton signed with Capitol Records and almost immediately scored a Top 5 album with "The Late, Late Show". In the late 1950s Staton released several critically acclaimed albums and her popularity ranked as high as that of contemporaries Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington. This CD contains two LP's first time on CD - "Dakota" (1960) and "Dakota Staton sings Ballads and the Blues" (1960) with the former album being accompanied by Benny Carter and his orchestra. The two bonus tracks are from a rare 45 single making this 26 track CD a must for jazz enthusiasts.
