AllMusic Review by

Despite remaining quite active as a singer, Ruth Price had not recorded as a leader in over 20 years when she cut this long-overdue (and now out-of-print) LP. Joined by pianist Tom Garvin, bassist Andy Simpkins, drummer Roy McCurdy and occasionally tenor saxophonist Pete Christlieb, Price emphasizes love songs on the mostly ballad-oriented and lyrical session. Among the 11 lyrics that she uplifts are "Lucky to Be Me," "My Romance," "Little Jazz Bird" and "Irresistible You."
