AllMusic Review by

As its title promises, My Kind of Blues captures a distinctly personal interpretation of familiar blues and jazz standards--Debby Moore's uncommonly warm and gentle vocals soften the blow delivered by the lyrics of "How Come You Do Me Like You Do" and "Nothin' But Trouble on My Mind," transforming their melancholy into profound compassion and understanding. Nuanced contributions from trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison, pianist Jimmy Jones, guitarist Barry Galbraith, bassist George Duvivier, and drummer Elvin Jones further underscore the session's feather-light beauty. Fresh Sound's 2007 CD reissue appends the bonus cut "Get a Feeling."
