When I recorded Toni Harper Sings with the Oscar Peterson Trio for Verve Records, I had known Verve’s owner and producer Norman Granz from earlier years. I had appeared as a singer on the radio in Los Angeles since 1945 and had performed at many benefit shows Norman had put together. So when Norman approached my agent to record with Oscar, I was overjoyed. But recording Toni Harper Sings was quite a departure for me. I had started my career singing songs like Candy Store Blues and Dolly’s Lullaby. Then in 1955, there I was singing songs like Love for Sale with the great Oscar Peterson Trio.
