iTunes Review

In 1959, Capitol Records positioned Peggy Lee as a female counterpart to Frank Sinatra, which is one of the reasons the label paired her with The Nelson Riddle Orchestra for Jump for Joy. But where that orchestra functioned as a steam engine for Sinatra—punctuating his verses with staccato hits and chutes of strings and horn—when it was Lee’s turn, Riddle's orchestra functioned more as a dance partner, gliding backward to give her space. Lee was such a subtle, soft-spoken vocalist that mixing technique was paramount to the success of Jump for Joy. Using only three microphones and a highly sophisticated understanding of space, the Capitol engineers achieved the proper balance between Lee’s pillowy vocals and the vigor of Riddle’s orchestra. That balance is best heard on this latest edition of Jump for Joy. The album reaches its peak on renditions of “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” “Cheek to Cheek," and “Just in Time,” in which Lee manages to stoke the arrangements with her seductive phrasing and float above the orchestra like a butterfly over waves.

After a couple of listens, I get it. Good to dance to, or even as a car trip sound track since most of the songs are speedy.
I don't love it. I wanted more from the percussion and bass lines. The lyrics are fine, not earth shattering, but there is substance.

Lacking.

Agree with other reviewer. Has some nice old 1960's music elements but never takes off on its own as something new or interesting.
