AllMusic Review by

Gail Dobson, an enjoyable jazz singer from Northern California, sings ten of her favorite standards on this well-rounded disc. She is joined on this mostly straight-ahead set by her late husband, pianist Smith Dobson; her son, vibraphonist Smith Dobson Jr.; and some of her musical friends, including on such numbers as "East of the Sun," "Estate," "Detour Ahead," and "Yesterdays," plus a version of "A Song for You" from 1972, with pianist George Muribus. This is a pretty definitive release and easily recommended to fans of the singer.
