"Nancy Harrow is one of the best kept secrets in jazz singing today...to the general public that is. Her admirers include John Lewis who has recorded with her and Bob Brookmeyer who accompanies her here on synthesizer and valve trombone. Brookmeyer's synthesizer arrangements and backups are eerie and evocative. The melody of the song "Street of Dreams" reasserts itself as a connecting motif throughout. The choice of songs is marvelous and combine beautifully to form a unified emotional synthesis. Harrow is equally at home with the standards as well as with Dylan, Waits, and Henley. Her rendition of "Desperado" is the best I've ever heard. She sings with such intelligence and emotional conviction (on all her albums) that I always feel that I'm inside the personality of the character who Harrow is portraying. This is simply a superb album. One of the best I've ever heard and, trust me, I've heard it over and over and it hasn't worn one bit...it just gets better with age."
