AllMusic Review by

This sampler from the K-Tel label has 11 recordings from the same number of female jazz singers. Unfortunately the budget release does not list personnel or recording dates (inexcusable omissions) and most of the music is available elsewhere. Sarah Vaughan, June Christy, Dakota Staton ("The Late Late Show"), Billie Holiday ("God Bless the Child"), Anita O'Day, Gloria Lynne ("I Wish You Love"), Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, Dinah Washington, Carmen McRae and Kitty Lester are all heard from.
