You just start to think you know Judith Durham as an artist and she surprises you, yet again. She reneged on her classical piano world and the possibility of a career in opera or musical theatre when she exuberantly embraced the teenage cult music of the day in the early Sixties.
Trad jazz and blues topped the charts around the world with bands like Acker Bilk, Kenny Ball and Chris Barber, and indeed here in Australia, the Graeme Bell All Stars.
The band of the day in Judith’s hometown of Melbourne was Frank Traynor’s Jazz Preachers and she recorded her first EP with them at the age of 20. So her jazz contemporaries accused her of selling out when she sang full-time with the chart-topping band The Seekers and became Australia’s first international pop princess. Isn’t that enough of a head-spin?
Then she became a solo artist recording with beautiful orchestras, but yet again an about-face.
Judith shows us on these vintage tracks, recorded in the early Seventies, how easily she transforms that golden voice to carry the music of the Twenties and Thirties for trad jazz aficionados into the Millennium on two albums recorded with bands she cofounded in San Francisco and in London with her late husband, brilliant pianist and arranger Ron Edgeworth.
Fans have begged, stolen and borrowed to replace their worn-out vinyls over the past four decades, and here they are again at last on a glorious 2CD set Judith Durham – The ‘Hottest Band In Town’ Collection (comprising Judith Durham & The Hottest Band In Town and Judith Durham & The Hottest Band In Town Volume 2) featuring seven of Judith’s own compositions and four bonus, never-before-released collector’s tracks.
You can be sure you’ll wanna dance to Judith’s music!
