AllMusic Review by

This 1983 Lp is a straight reissue of Marlene Ver Planck's first album, a Savoy set that has since been reissued on CD by Denon in their Savoy series. With assistance from trumpeter Joe Wilder, flutist Herbie Mann, pianist Hank Jones, bassist Wendell Marshall and drummer Kenny Clarke, Ver Planck (who had a very impressive voice from the start) brings sincere emotion and a light swing to her renditions of ten ballads from the 1932-44 period.
