AllMusic Review by

Capitol reissued Peggy Lee's 1958 albums Things Are Swingin' and Jump for Joy on one compact disc in 1997. Many of Lee's records are not all that strong from a jazz standpoint, but Things Are Swingin' is a definite exception. Backed by an orchestra arranged and conducted by Jack Marshall, the emphasis is on swinging renditions of standards; Lee's light, soft voice rarely sounded more appealing. Highlights include such sprightly songs as "It's a Wonderful World," "Lullaby in Rhythm," "Ridin' High" and "You're Mine You." Jump for Joy is more pop-oriented but just as enjoyable, finding Lee in something of a peak. Both records are among her best, making this an ideal choice for serious Peggy Lee fans.
