"Betty Carter gave us something pretty special with this mellow, deeply musical album. If you are a jazz collecter, this is going to be something you want to hear. The title track is one of the loveliest, bluest melodies I've ever heard. There are no lyrics until the final minute of the song (it's all Betty's slow scat, tenor saxophone, killer base, drums, and piano) and when she finally lays the words on you, they're so poignant: "We haven't met since then. Gee, but it's nice to see you again." I mean, it all comes together right at that moment. It'd be nice to see a singer like Betty Carter again."

"This album came out in 1996. It's Betty Carter's last album before she died in 1998. It's wonderful! Wouldn't it be great to hear someone play a brass or wind instrument that could enunciate words? That's Betty Carter singing. She is backed by the very best musicians! This is just music, telepathic, beyond style."

"I heard the title track late one night on the one local jazz station. I didn't know who the artist was and stayed sharp so I could be sure to hear the dj back-announce the song. I bought the CD the next day. If you ever find yourself looking for a definition of beauty or if you feel like your world's become a bit cold and ugly, put on this album. You will feel better. I don't mean you'll feel the dopey, KennyG, I-ate-too-much-candy type of vibe. I mean you'll hear music that was made by a woman who has probably been through hell but still has the ability to see the beauty of being alive and to express that with her voice. The title song alone is worth the price of the CD but, fortunately, the rest of the music is very good. Thanks, Betty."
