AllMusic Review by

Recipe for Romance is a swinging, elegant sampler of love songs -- most of them recognized as standards -- performed by some of jazz and vocal pop's finest female vocalists (plus Mel Tormé). This will appeal much more to fans of golden-age vocal music than to those looking for vocal jazz with strong improvisational content, but its warmth is undeniable. Featured artists include Rosemary Clooney, Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan, Doris Day, Nancy Wilson, Helen Forrest, Peggy Lee, and more.
