Synopsis

Amazon.com
This 18-cut compilation reaches its peak with Sarah Vaughan's rendition of "One Mint Julep," which retains the arrangement Quincy Jones wrote for Ray Charles's version. Horns blaring, rhythm pumping, Vaughan goes completely over the top in her recounting of a night of passion that led to a lot more than she bargained for--a baby and a shotgun wedding, to be exact. Good to hear that she still managed to get out once in a while. And in fine style. --Rickey Wright

Classic cocktail, swing, and camp all in one.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great tunes from the '50s and '60s sung by all the heavy hitters, Ella Fitzgerald to Dean Martin. And where else can find Robert Mitchum singing Calypso?"
