One of Nancy's BEST !
Peter | East of Los Angeles | 04/01/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a rather remarkable album Nancy put out back in the '60s when she was churning them out one after another. I can't say even in her heyday ('60s) that all her records were great, but this is an absolute MUST if you're a fan of jazz and Nancy's music. Her voice here attains a depth of feeling that was missing from a lot of her prior albums on Capitol. I don't know whether it was the spare arrangement here that brought out her best or she simply sounds better with less orchestration, but she simply NAILS every performance here, it's really remarkable. The spare back-up lets Nancy improvise and flow with her amazing vocals. I often wondered why Capitol put her with so many orchestras such as Billy May or Gerald Wilson, this girl sounds like a jazz singer, not another Doris Day or Patti Page, and you gotta give her room to breathe and improvise like a Billie Holiday or Sarah Vaughan. The songs are well-chosen and again the arrangements are subtle, which brings out an inspired Nancy."
Golden Nancy with a Jazz Quartet - Great, Great ... The Best
Carlos from Rio | Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil | 07/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Gene Bertoncini on guitar - wow! wow! wow! - It's very serious. It's great Nancy. When I first heard her singing "Happiness is Just a Thing Called Joe" I simply wondered why my parents named me Carlos. Buy it now - you deserve it. I've bought some 10 as a gift for my friends. Beyond category."

"This is a superb album. I sat down trying to list my favorite songs, but ended up listing every song on the album. If you yearn for good music -- not plastic pop music where looks, rather than talent, reigns supreme -- then buy this album. They don't make singers like Nancy anymore; what a tragedy. You will not be disappointed by this album, and you will quickly end up buying everything she's ever made. The early stuff is better than her 80s work, but among the later stuff, Love Nancy is excellent!!!"
