AllMusic Review by

Gogi Grant provided the vocals for Ann Blyth in the Michael Curtiz movie The Helen Morgan Story, and got this album out of it. It's a great showcase for her as a jazz singer -- she's at her best on numbers like "Someone to Watch Over Me" (worth the price of admission by itself) and less so on the pop music of the period, done in pop style. Ray Heindorf handles the accompaniment in tasteful fashion, and the CD reissue offers state-of-the-art sound.
