CD Reviews

Superb, impeccably-done jazz.
Lee Hartsfeld | Central Ohio, United States | 09/28/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Normally, nothing bores me more than smooth-jazz renderings of the so-called Great American Songbook. Maybe that's why I was expecting a pretentious and contrived time on this CD. Wrong!! Lucy Ann Polk's lusciously laid-back singing suggests an artist who can do anything she wants with her voice, and anytime she wants to. Her intonation, sense of swing, and dynamic control are all astonishingly perfect. Of the brilliant musicians who provide background for her vocal greatness, Marty Paich's sophisticated ivory-work suggests a musician who has studied every last innovation of 20th-century jazz and art music, and who can reference them at will, and in any context.I have some 45s on which Ms. Polk sings with Jimmy Dorsey. I feel a duty to dig them out, without delay. Meanwhile, your duty is to buy this wonderful CD!"
Wonderful Music For A Rainy Day
Dawn Woolcott | Vancouver WA | 02/14/2003

"I bought this cd based on one song I had heard on a mixed compilation. It was a risk, but boy am I glad I did! It's a perfect cd filled with nice mellow, yet upbeat songs. It makes for great background music during parties, a Sunday drive in the country, or a nice rainy day. Her voice is a bit like Doris Day's, but with a nice jazzy touch. Can't say enough!"
A Real Gem
Robert J. Ament | Ballwin, MO United States | 07/28/2002

"A vocalist with a very refreshing voice out of the Doris Day type of delivery and style......with just a bare hint of June Christy in some of her phrasing. Hardly surprising since I remember her from some of her vocals with Les Brown. She married Dick Noel, the trombonist on this cd, while both were with the Brown band. Since she only had 3 releases under her name, with that fine voice, I can only conclude she gave up her career to raise a family.This is really good music....lightly swinging with excellent personnel. Most anyone will like this one!"
