AllMusic Review by

Storyville Presents Teddi King captures a dark, maudlin edge absent from King's later LPs--its late-night ambience perfectly complements her lyrical, contemplative vocals, adding new layers of intimacy to this most honest of singers. Backed by an exemplary supporting unit including trumpeter Ruby Braff, pianist Jimmy Jones, bassist Milt Hinton, and drummer Jo Jones, King fully inhabits material like "It's the Talk of the Town" and "Love Is a Now and Then Thing," summoning new and deeply personal meaning from their familiar messages.
