After two LPs of down-tempo torch songs, Jeri Southern recorded a set of comparatively swinging songs, backed by a clean, reflective small-group orchestra with Ralph Burns in the director's chair. Ever the vocal coach, Southern picks a few rather obscure songs ("You Forgot Your Gloves," "I've Got Five Dollars") to enlighten the date, and brings a plaintive concern to chestnuts like "Am I Blue?" and "If I Had You." Southern is also heard on piano throughout the date.
