Baltimore native Ethel Ennis is a national treasure. Critics have hailed her as the most accomplished singer performing today. That stature was earned by her magnificent voice, her brilliant compositions, her joyful performances and her collaboration with the finest musicians.
Ethel Ennis first won national recognition for her recording Lullaby for Losers in 1955. In 1958, she was selected by Benny Goodman as the female vocalist for his all-star band. Later, she was chosen as a featured singer on the Arthur Godfrey Show. After performing at the 1964 Newport Jazz Festival with Billy Taylor, Cozy Cole, and Slam Stewart, she appeared with Duke Ellington and his Orchestra on television's Bell Telephone Hour. She followed those amazing achievements by wowing them at the Monterey Jazz Festival in duets with Joe Williams. She returned to her hometown to perform in concerts with the Count Basie Band and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. During that same period, she shared the bill with Cab Calloway at Harlem's Apollo Theater and played supper clubs and concert halls all over the country....
