Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Lorez Alexandria


Here is a famous song by one of the most renowned and respected jazz singers, Lorez Alexandria "the great".
Lorez Alexandria (born Dolorez Turner in 1929 in Chicago, Illinois, died in 2001 in Los Angeles, California) never made the anticipated breakthrough to a wider audience, but she was highly regarded as a jazz singer by those who knew her work, whether as critics, musicians or fans.
"A solid singer who is superior at interpreting lyrics, gives a soulful feeling to each song and improvises with subtlety, Lorez Alexandria has been a popular attraction for several decades. She sang gospel music with her family at churches starting in the mid-40's and worked in Chicago nightclubs in the 1950's. With the release of several albums for King during 1957-59, Alexandria became popular beyond her hometown and by the early 1960's she was living and working in Los Angeles. Despite a long period off records (only a few private recordings during the 1965-76 period), Alexandria has survived through the many changes in musical styles and in the 1990's could be heard in excellent form."

Enjoy Lorez' smooth voice and style!

The thrill is gone
