Album Review

Wesla Whitfield has long had a beautiful voice and excelled in swinging jazz, cabaret music, and music that falls between those two areas.

But the main reason for this set's success lies with Wesla Whitfield, who sings with sensitivity, light swing, and beauty throughout the 11 standards and two obscurities.
