More elaborate, mid-'80s session that accents Cleo Laine's interpretative abilities. It showcases both her immaculate technique and her ability to build and create moods, pace songs, and embellish lyrics.
This album/performance blows my mind. It is mellow and delicious. Cleo Laine is captured here at perfection. The piano arrangements are sumptuous. If you've heard Cleo scatting or being a little too boisterous.... well, that certainly doesn't happen here. This is sooooo much better than the "retro/big-band" release of a certain pop star in the 80's. Hint: Nelson Riddle was on board. What else can I say? Try the samples
I've been a fan of Dame Cleo's for years, and this album showcases what a great singer she is. Beautiful arrangements, and simple accompaniment, make this album sparkle.
