Anita Sings the Most is a 1957 album by Anita O'Day. The album was recorded in Los Angeles on January 31, 1957. In addition to vocalist O'Day, the musicians were pianist Oscar Peterson, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown, and Milt Holland or John Poole on drums. Anita Sings the Most was released by Verve Records. Jazz: The Rough Guide identified the album as one that shows O'Day's "rhythmic invention and accuracy"
Originally issued as Anita Sings the Most, this album was picked up by the American Recording Society and sent out to its members as Anita Sings for Oscar. This was her fifth album for Norman Granz's Verve Records, the label that supplied most of the ARS releases and, some say, her best. Pairing O'Day and Peterson was akin to joining Vladimir Horowitz with Arturo Toscanini. It was a mystery as to who would finish first on the upbeat numbers, as both liked to keeping matters moving along at a rather brisk pace. This contest is afoot on the opening medley of "They Can't Take.

Anita O'Day recorded many rewarding albums in the 1950s when her voice was at its strongest, and this collaboration with the Oscar Peterson Quartet (comprised of pianist Peterson, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer John Poole) may very well be her best. Not only is the backup swinging, giving a Jazz at the Philharmonic feel to some of the songs, but O'Day proves that she could keep up with Peterson
