first official Concord recording (which was predated by part of Live From Concord to London
) launched her "comeback" after years of neglect (and a decade off of records). Accompanied by pianist Hank Jones
, bassist Ray Brown
and drummer Jimmie Smith
mixes together veteran standards (such as "Yes Sir That's My Baby," "It Don't Mean a Thing" and "Tain't Nobody's Bizness") with more recent songs from Johnny Mandel
, Stevie Wonder
("Bird of Beauty"), Ray Brown
("Soft Shoe") and even "Send In the Clowns" on this CD reissue. The singer's enthusiasm comes across throughout this fine studio set.
