Not a dud record from Ernestine and George

"I always loved pianist George Shearing's impressionistic pianism that is both distinctive and possesses the best qualities of Ahmad Jamal and fellow Brit Marian McPartland. So it was a surprise knowing that he did a duet album (almost a duet, the other members of the rhythm section offer discreet support) with Seattle-based Ernestine Anderson. Now, I love Ernestine Anderson ever since she decided to come back to the jazz recording scene in 1977. She just released very fine vocal jazz albums in the Concord catalog year after year. And her voice may not be versatile, but the wonders she can do with the limited range. She is unpretentious when she sings the Jule Styne "The Things We Did Last Summer" that touches you in invisible ways. She can still sing "Body and Soul" without invoking other torch singers who did that song before her. As usual, her sense of swing is in sync with Shearing. This album is consistently good that its hard to recommend this album in particular without urging others to explore her back catalogs which show a consistent and fine musicianship from her band and from a voice so direct and unadorned, it speaks from a depth of experience and love for the music."

"Ernestine Anderson is as swingin' as ever on these remarkable duets with George Shearing at the piano. Highlights include "I Won't Dance", "The Best Thing For You", "I'll Take Romance", and the gorgeous ballad "Body & Soul." All of the performances on this spectacular session are great."
