One Of The Best Bop Modernist Singers........
Robert J. Ament | Ballwin, MO United States | 07/10/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a really good cd displaying the considerable talent of Anita O'Day with a fine supporting group of musicians. Her improvisation, phrasing, scat singing and tremendous sense of rhythm are displayed in a varied playlist: ballads, blues, and Brazilian. I've always been fascinated by her ability to sing a torch song and turn around and swing like a jazz musician.This is a 1978 outing which is handled very well with great accompanyment by Laurendo Almeida, Lou Levy and great reed work from Ernie Watts......a thoroughly enjoyable set."
Anita is always swinging and improvising...

"One thing you can always count on in an Anita O'Day performance in improvisation, I've seen her live recently enough times to know she never sings a song the same way twice. This album is very different from Anita's other projects because she uses latin rhythms, yet still constantly swinging and improvising, and taking plenty of chances. This CD is recommended to O'Day fans, more casual O'Day listeners should start out with her juicy Verve re-issues such as "Pick Yourself Up With Anita O'Day." Aslo go see her live every tuesday night at the Atlas in Hollywood on Wishire and Western, she's as great as ever, and a load of laughs if you get a chance to talk to her, Go see her, she's the last of the living, and still performing jazz singers."
One of miss o'day's better later sets...

"A good set of standards and some latin tinged tunes(reminiscint of her lp with Cal Jader). Overall a nice jazz oriented studio set with some great sidemen such as pianist LOU LEVY. Very enjoyable music, with Anita at her peak and costantly improvising and using he rvoice as an instrument."
