This is an okay set by veteran singer Gloria Lynne, but one that never really catches fire. Guitarist Rodney Jones was responsible for the arrangements (which are decent but not all that colorful) and produced the date, which finds Lynne backed by Jones, pianist Mike Renzi, bassist Benjamin Brown, either Akira Tana or Jesse Hameen II on drums and sometimes vibraphonist Mark Sherman and organist Bobby Forrester. Although the material is fine, Lynne does not make such songs as "Angel Eyes," "What a Difference a Day Makes," "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" and "Here's That Rainy Day" sound as if they were written for her. The results are pleasing but fall short of their potential.
