AllMusic Review by

Nanette Natal had careers in classical, rock, and pop music before she became involved with jazz in the 1970s. My Song of Something was her first jazz recording and it is a very good one. Natal's voice is warm, she proves to be a natural and adventurous improviser (her scatting is quite colorful), and she also interprets lyrics with plenty of feeling. Her seven originals are diverse yet consistently catchy. While the playing of tenor saxophonist Ed Palermo and the rhythm section is mostly functional, Natal's singing makes her jazz debut (which still sounds fresh decades later) a highly recommended acquisition.
