All or Nothing at All. I'll Remember April. Joni's innovative work with the big orchestras eventually resulted in her being one of the few vocalists to be inducted into the Big Band Hall of Fame and the only vocalist to be inducted who never sang as a member of a big band! It was only when the enthusiastic audiences at her college concerts asked her why they couldn't find jazz albums by her or big-band-type albums by her that she considered adding that music to her recording repertoire.
The result was a spectacular three-album project representing the first step in what would prove a new era for Joni crossing over from the field of pop music to jazz audiences. Although M-G-M always granted Joni the best musicians and arrangers for her albums, many of them recording stars in their own right, it outdid itself with "The Mood" albums.
Three outstanding and distinctly different arrangers were brought on board. For the "Swinging! Fans who had seen Joni James in person knew she could be big, brassy and bold. In fact, in her prerecording years as a supperclub chanteuse she was known for her fast numbers as her ballads. But for her record audience this was a new kind of Joni, a sing-out, full-steam-ahead, hold-onto-that-note-Joni.
For the "Blue" album Jack Marshall was sought. A favorite of Judy Garland and Peggy Lee, his specialty was bright, crackerjack, brisk-paced even for ballads orchestrations with particularly felicitous use of horns and reeds.
Joni responded with a sense of musical joy and freshness that makes even the bluest of the songs engaging. Skip to main content. See All Buying Options. Have one to sell? Sell on Amazon.
