AllMusic Review by

This collection features both new and classic interpretations of Hoagy Carmichael's work by some of the greatest jazz vocalists and instrumentalists on the Blue Note label. Songs like "Georgia on My Mind" and "Just a Shade on the Blue Side" are reworked by artists as diverse as Peggy Lee and Chet Baker, as well as new stars like Cassandra Wilson. Carmichael's songs are timeless, and this quality group of performers do them justice.
