AllMusic Review by

Trudy Desmond is a fine interpreter of lyrics who swings lightly while not departing much from the original melody. Joined by pianist Roger Kellaway, bassist Bob Cranshaw, drummer Terry Clarke, and a few guests (trumpeter Randy Brecker, trombonist Jim Pugh, cellist Carol Buck, and guitarist Gene Bertoncini), Desmond mostly sticks to well-known standards on this enjoyable CD. Her tasteful interpretations fall between jazz and cabaret, uplifting such songs as "Day by Day," "Lucky to Be Me," "I Thought About You," and "People Will Say We're in Love."
