AllMusic Review by

Singer Anita O'Day's first recording in seven years finds her still possessing a decent voice at 50 and the ability to swing and improvise creatively. Backed by pianist George Arvanitas, bassist Jacky Samson and drummer Charles Saudrais, O'Day is at her best on "Honeysuckle Rose," and a medley of "Yesterday" and "Yesterdays," and "Street of Dreams," although some of the more recent material (her own "Soon It's Gonna Rain" and "Sunny") is of lesser interest.
