AllMusic Review by

The legendary jazz vocalist is heard performing some of her best-known songs in this mix of live and radio recordings, performed in a variety of musical settings, including the sophisticated lounge piano and bass of "I Loves You Porgy," an intimate group backing on the dark ballad "Strange Fruit," a smooth big band arrangement of "God Bless the Child," and orchestral accompaniment on "Lover Man."
