The group formed in 1957 and recorded their first album Sing a Song of Basie for Paramount Records.

Beginning in 1959, the trio recorded three LPs with Columbia Records. Their song "Twisted," featuring Ross's lyrics set to a Wardell Gray melody, was featured in Woody Allen's Deconstructing Harry (1997) and has been covered by Joni Mitchell, Bette Midler and others. Their High Flying won a Grammy Award for Best Performance by a Vocal Group in 1962. Lambert, Hendricks & Ross were voted Best Vocal Group in the Down Beat Readers Poll from 1959 to 1963.
