BiographySinger Abbey Lincoln made a spectacular comeback in the early 90s and has been riding high ever since. Lincoln started out as a jazz chanteuse and made the most of her extraordinary good looks in supper club and film appearances. Like Billie Holiday, her singing always had a personal, conversational flavor. She married the drummer Max Roach and become part of his experimental, protest-jazz projects. Lincoln's voice has aged considerably since those days, but she is still at the top of her game. Besides having a knack for picking interesting standards, Lincoln writes the other half of her material and her Verve albums offer fine interplay with ace musicians.
