AllMusic Review by

Where Love Has Gone beautifully distills the essence of Jack Jones. A subtle, focused record that draws on jazz and pop elements but steadfastly avoids genre pigeonholing, it's first and foremost a collection of romantic standards re-imagined in ways that stay true to their writers' intent yet reveal new gradations of meaning in their familiar lyrics. Collaborating with arrangers Pete King and Harry Betts, Jones eschews drama and gimmicks, letting his heartfelt vocals speak for themselves. He invests songs like "Here's That Rainy Day," "What's New," and "Lush Life" with the world-weary wisdom of one who's lived through the sadness and heartbreak their lyrics illuminate, creating music that is both intimate and universal at the same time.
