AllMusic Review by

Another in a series of works with noted operatic singer Eileen Farrell turning to works by pre-rock composers. Her renditions of Johnny Mercer songs were delivered peerlessly, although she didn't always provide the emotional shadings and textures others brought to the lyrics. The 1991 album again featured arrangements by Loonis McGlohon, as well as Manny Albam on four tunes, and a slightly altered instrumental lineup.
