"Her voice exudes all of the wonderful qualities that one would attribute to an attractive mature woman..... low-pitched, husky, with an incredible refined sex appeal. If you doubt this, listen to her killer version of the old Tommy Dorsey theme "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You". Another favorite of mine is "An Older Man...etc". which, with her delivery, tends to make you feel better about the passing years (face it guys....none of us stays young forever).Actually, there isn't a bad track on the whole disk. Superb accompanyment by Stefan Scaggaiari on piano, the rest of the rhythm section being John Lockwood on bass and Colin Bailey on drums. Some nice embellishment is provided by the appearance of Frank Wess on 4 tracks, playing either tenor sax or flute. You have to try this one........actually, any of her Concord Jazz albums would be good choices. A wonderful songstress."
That honey on the cover says a lot about the rec - er - CD

"I'm lucky enough to live near Carol, and be somewhat of a groupie. This is my favorite album of hers. The mature sound of her voice is better now than when she was younger. But this record (yes I'm showing my age as well)shows her voice in its very top form. And the song selection is fabulous. One Morning in May is my particular favorite. Overall the lyrics of loves remembered and existing long term loves further kindled is really rich in the thoughts they bring to mind, while the music really swings, even in the slower tempo songs.I know the Ballad Essentials series was meant as introductory records, but trust me, for the best sample of the most unsung singer in history, take it Sweet & Slow!"
