"Patti was crooning in a sultry jazz style long before she made the Hit Parade with a string of million selling singles. She continued to sing Ellington, Porter and the rest even when the radio was blaring the TENNESSEE WALTZ, OLD CAPE COD and GENTLE ON MY MIND. When Pete Rugolo took Patti into the studio in 1956 and recorded this collection, he did the music world a favor. And he did Patti Page fans an even bigger favor. These arrangements and vocals are 46 years old!!!!!! They sound as up to date today as they did when recorded. A good recording will always stand the test of time. Every one of these songs seems to have been written for Patti. Whether it's a word packer such as the Rugolo arrangment of NEVERTHELESS or MOUNTAIN GREENERY or my favorite LOVE FOR SALE, these songs and these songwriters never had it so good. In fact these were so successful that Pete arranged two more jazz albums for Patti which were available as individual albums and as a double set (THE EAST SIDE/THE WEST SIDE). We in the states are not yet lucky enough to have those released on CD although they are available on a Japanese import.If you are expecting an Ella or Sarah rendition of these songs, you will find them on other CDs. No one has or apparently ever will sing like Patti."

"Well, despite the carpings of a couple of other reviewers below, if you love classic vocals, you'll dig this CD. No, Patti Page will never be mistaken for Billie or Ella, but that's not really the point. This record ranks up there with some of the best work of '50s pop singers like Doris Day and Keely Smith...and Patti's voice is truly a joy to listen to. A lost gem."

"I've gone through 3 copies of the vinyl lp and the cd is in constant use. Can't believe these recordings sound so up to date. I can't think of better recordings of any of these songs and I have all kinds including Ella, Nat, Frank, Mel."
