"Jack Sheldon is the hidden treasure of jazz singers. No one sings better jazz then a jazz musician. If his rendering of "I Thought About You" dosen't put you away...then go right to hip hop, babe."

"Yes, this is Jack Sheldon, THE Jack Sheldon of the Merv Griffin Show. When my mother used to watch that show in the '70's, she would point to Sheldon in the band and say to me, "He's a great artist." Well, on the basis of this CD, I don't know if great applies, but Sheldon is definitely an artist of significant gifts. There is a lot of his singing on this CD. It is raspy and drawling (a Southern drawl, as one of the numbers has it), and completely distinctive. Not that he is a great vocalist--one can get tired of his singing after a while. But he has character and taste and, as in his virtuoso account of Lover, an impish wit. His trumpet playing is wonderful without qualification. He has assembled a fine band. I would highlight the solos of the veteran pianist Ray Sherman, which are always delectable. This album is a lot of fun, and it is very good Jazz, too."
