CD Reviews

A pure delight!!
B. J. Lane | Levittown, PA United States | 06/09/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Thank you to the folks at Studio West for unearthing this marvelous collection of songs (mostly recorded in the early 1960's) by this lovely singer whose superb jazz-oriented vocal stylings are rarely heard on record these days.I happen to own some of Ms. Raney's albums (including the three she made with Bob Florence), and I have always been amazed at her talent over the years. The liner notes are very informative also."
Vocal perfection
Mark F. O'Connor | Toledo, Ohio United States | 03/11/2003

"Wow...I can't remember how I happened upon this disc, but this is one of the most enjoyable vocal jazz discs in my collection.Many singers excel in one or two qualities, but Sue's got it all with perfect pitch, phrasing, placement and lots of range with perfect control.The most recent session included here is from ca.1969, including a beautiful ballad of Bobby Troup, along with some great up-tempo pieces backed up by Shelley Manne. And as perfect as the voice was in 1961, it was pluperfect in 1969!But what is the Voice like now? I wait, like Simeon, for the collaboration with Alan Broadbent."
Wonderful jazz oriented singing with Page at the piano...

"What could be a more perfect match than Page Cavanaugh at the paino and Sue Raney at the microphone. Raney's drop dead gorgeous voice with Cavanaugh's uncanny swing style piano is a match made in heaven. Raney sings, swings and improvises through a variety of jazz standards. Studio West(who also put out an exellent collection of Joannie Sommers songs), has outdone themselves, with this wonderful collection of Sue Raney gems. This music is timeless, roamntic, swinging, and pure jazz delight. Studio West has done it again, a perfect jazz vocal masterpiece. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
