Lambert, Hendricks & Ross was a vocal trio brought together three extremely gifted bop-influenced vocalists with the express desire to perfect the art of vocalese, which put lyrics to melodies defined by well known solos from previous jazz records. The group's debut recording, SING A SONG OF BASIE, also utilized overdubbing to re-create with voices the instrumental parts in Basie's big band arrangements. The album made them stars, and they became one of the most popular jazz acts of the late '50s and early '60s. Their collective jazz vocalese accomplishments have never been surpassed.
