AllMusic Review by

Though a singer of uncommon emotional depth, Beverly Kenney could also cut loose with the best of them, and Come Swing with Me captures an effervescence and playfulness often absent from her later, more renowned sessions. Paired with arranger Ralph Burns, who likewise sidesteps his usual subtle refinement for a lighter, more lively approach, Kenney retains the thoughtful phrasing and sultry demeanor that are her signatures, but it's a pleasure to hear her tackle material like "You Make Me Feel So Young" and "You Go to My Head" with such unabashed gusto. [Originally released in 1956, the LP was reissued on an import-only Japanese CD in 2003.]
