AllMusic Review by

This 40-track set -- over 155 minutes long -- contains versions of classic and popular tunes originally recorded by top-name artists. While few of them are actually "jazz" tunes, they do fit the "jazz mood": cosmopolitan, timelessly hip, and sophisticated whether they were originally recorded in the '50s or the 1990s. While the artists on this digital download-only compilation are uncredited, these tracks all contain the same arrangements as the hit versions. In addition, singers have been chosen to imitate, as closely as possible, the voices of the artists who cut the hits. Standout tracks here are versions of "I Say a Little Prayer," "Blue Velvet," and "Stormy Weather."
