Her finest post Verve session to date
(5 out of 5 stars)
"For those who have all of her classic chancetaking verve sessions and long for more, this is the next logical choice. In fact Anita O'Day sounds so vibrant and inspired on this set, one would think it was recorded in the same period as her 60's Verve years, and not about 15 years later. O'Day turns standards like Mean To Me, and gives them her own spin with lot's of improvisation, and high musicianship throughout. This might be Anita's finest post Verve set, and it's definately worth acquiring."
This IS the complete re-issue of the original LP!!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is one of O'Day's finest later period sessions(other then a great set she recorded in Hawaii with Herb Ohta), here she sings standards and adds her unique stye of pure imagination, improvisation, and creativity. I have the original lp, and can vouch that this is the complete re-issue, I guess some reviewers will make excuses just to give bad reviews. Don't be discouraged, thsi is O'Day at her creative peak, a fine jazz session, with her trio, including her drummer John Poole."
There's no reason for this reissue to be so disappointing

"This CD is a long-overdue reissue of part of an LP of the same name on the long-extinct All Art label. It serves a good purpose by finally bringing this material from Anita's 1975 Japanese tour to CDs. The downside is that two of the tunes on the original LP were left off this new CD for no apparent reason, leaving this Kayo product woefully short by CD standards. The surviving 10 tunes are excellent examples of O'Day's craft nearly 30 years ago, but a complete re-issue of the original LP would have been far, far preferable."
