Album Review

Superb 12-song long-player, derived from Sylvia Syms' October 1952 10" debut LP on Atlantic, and her 1954 Songs by Sylvia Syms. Delightful from the opener, a scintillating rendition of "Paradise," highlighted by Syms' dizzying interaction with Al Cohn's tenor sax, Danny Bank's baritone sax, and Don Elliott's trumpet. The songs tend to alternate between slow ballads (mostly backed by the Barbara Carroll Trio) and more up-tempo pieces, what they used to call "rhythm numbers," the former smoldering seductively and the latter showing Syms' more playful side. The sound on the Japanese reissue CD from the 1990s is great.
