"This is the album that I purchasedfirst and let me tell you, eversince that day, I`ve been trying to buy everything sung by Etta Jone that I can get my hands on.Out of all, this is my favorite one I like it even better than "Don`t Go To Strangers."This oneis truly worth every penny you put in it. It`s perfect for a romantic setting and when you want to relax and just cool out, this will truly satisfy.I like every song on Lonely and blue and I highly recommend it. If you only want one cd by this artist, this is without, a doubt the one to buy.You won`t be sorry."
Jumping for Jug

"This would be merely a 4-star album were it not for the 3 bonus tracks featuring Gene Ammons. The other tunes are, for the most part, not first rate--more of an R&B repertory than Etta's usual Lady Day-inspired re-visionings of classics from the American Songbook.But then that inimitable, sublimely soulful sound of Jug's tenor joins Etta for the final three tunes--each of them not only a winner in its own right but a perfect showcase for the talents of two of the most personal and personable voices in jazz. Etta's voice meshes well with tenor saxophones--one of the few female voices that can stand alongside the big, bluesy, full-throated and earthy sounds of the Coleman Hawkins school of jazz tenor playing. And no one complements her better than Jug. In fact, to hear the two of them together on the rarely performed, operatic and exquisite "If You're But a Dream" is by itself easily worth the price of the album. If "soul" is spirit made palpable, the power of this music to touch us deeply is proof positive of the two generous spirits who created it. It's music like this that keeps dreams alive."
A Great Intro to Etta

"When I heard an Etta Jones song on NPR I browsed Amazon's offerings and ordered this cd, based upon the first review and the samplings I listened to. It was not the easiest cd to get hold of, but it was well worth the wait. This is a smooth and bluesy collection of great jazz vocals and musical accompanyments. Etta is backed up by a combo of considerable talent, and the musicians play together with a seemingly effortless, laid-back ease. Their frequent, solo passages are really nice too. On the softer numbers such as 'I'll Be There' and 'I'm Pulling Through' Etta sings quietly, accompanied only by a trio of piano, base and guitar, while on other numbers such as 'Cool Cool Daddy' she belts out the lyrics with a sax and drums joining in. The more powerful numbers complement the quieter ones, without overwhelming the soft bluesy mood of the cd as a whole. The music is a nice mix of familiar standards and less well known, but equally good songs, and Etta's voice and style are wonderful. This cd has proved to be a very rewarding and promising intro to Etta Jones. Buy it while you can!"
