Jimmy Lyons Trio
Jingles & Commercials
Vintage Studio Recordings
Although Chicago is known as "The Second City",
there is nothing second-fiddle about the sides Pat
made with Tiffany Records. Her brief stint with this
company produced these '50s-era sounds.
Throughout her career, Pat has had the privilege of
working with the finest musicians. The Jimmy Lyons
Trio was the house band at New York's famed Blue
Angel when Pat first sang there. Her association with
this magnificent group, with Lyons on Piano, Jimmy
Raney on Guitar, and Beverly Peer on Bass, led to this
special studio recording.
During the '60s, Pat was popular with local producers &
songwriters. We’ve preserved a few of the recordings
from this era, and it’s interesting to hear how Pat could
adapt her voice to various musical styles. Range and
versatility are hallmarks of greatness, and Pat had both
in abundance! Here she is having fun experimenting with
some Carol Frankel songs. Frank Gary, whose fine
voice complements Pat's perfectly, is heard on the duet."
Pat did a lot of commercials and jingles over the years.
These recordings are rare and hard to find, but we'll keep
looking! Here are a few that turned up. Pat did them during
the '60s with noted Cleveland musician Dick Wooley, who
now heads up the popular TOPS (Tough Old Pros) band.
