CD Reviews

What a find!!!
J. Lawson | Springfield, MO United States | 04/16/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Being familiar with Joanie for only "Johnny Get Angry", I was thrilled to find this CD full of big band swinging arrangements. It's a mixed bag; some of the tracks I skip, but the versions of "Till There Was You" and "After the Lights Go Down Low" are stunning and worth buying the entire CD. I pray that Collectables will reissue some of Joanie's other LP's, especially "Softly, the Brazilian Sound", and "Sommers' Seasons""
My favorite of all of Joanie's albums!!

"I'm happy that this album (released in 1962) finally made it to CD (I own the LP version)...this is one of my personal favorites among Joanie's albums, thanks in large part to Tommy Oliver's swinging big band charts!"
A little funky but still cool!!!

"Joannie Sommers possesses a bell like voice with clarity, and this little mama knows how to swing!!! And she swings hard! she would have made a great big band singer, however this was the 60's when this was originally out on lp, and Sommers was a mere teenager, who fully inderstands the meanign of each song and lyric. A great cd, she sounds enthusiastic and she's a cutie too! Some of teh arrangements can't help but sound like the early 60's, though in general they swing, and are very jazz, but in spots are slightly loungy and dated, however that doesn't detract this from being the best lp, by any new jazz singer from the 60's(with the acception of Sheial Jordan, portrait of...). Buy it, you'l llike it if you like creativity and slight improviation in your singers, and her vocie is so appealing and sweet'n'swingin'!!!"
