AllMusic Review by

Hello, Tiger! pairs Sallie Blair with the great Neal Hefti, whose buoyant, Technicolor arrangements underline the singer's slinky appeal. While the material is predictable and pedestrian, leaning on chestnuts like "That Old Black Magic," "Witchcraft," and "Whatever Lola Wants," Blair's sultry readings revitalize the familiar lyrics. Hefti does similar rehab work on the melodies, mixing and matching elements of jazz, blues, and Latin pop to create the album's sexy, sophisticated ambience.
