"If you've had a bad day at the office or with the kids, you can mellow out with one of the true vocal legends of Los Angeles. Going back to the Central Ave. days in LA more than 50 years ago, Ernie is still happily singing and swinging and has a way of putting just the right melodic spin on the words.
Adding interest and color to this wonderful album is the soulful Houston Person on tenor.
I love relaxed, low-keyed jazz albums as an antidote to a sometimes frantic world - ones with an unforced swing that aren't boring, and Ernie sings what he's lived in his long, joyful and productive life. (Many years ago I had the privilege of sitting in with him at Alphonse's Restaurant on Riverside Dr. and I'll never forget the thrill.)"
