6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 21 Aug 2002
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The very title of the album suggests quality, and that's what you get here. Peggy plundered the Great American Songbook as usual (often selecting obscure but high quality songs), adding a couple of her own songs (Where can I go without you? and I didn't find love).
Peggy was, of course, in her element on the slow, seductive songs which were her trademark - just listen to her cover of Days of wine and roses - and which make up most of this album, but what really makes this album sparkle is the variation in pace. For example, on The lady is a tramp, Peggy went uptempo, not by dramatically raising her voice (that wasn't her style), but by singing more quickly than usual. The musicianship throughout the album is masterful, yet always secondary to Peggy's lovely voice.
This is a classy album by a classy singer who is sadly missed, but who has left an outstanding legacy in the form of a whole series of brilliant albums. I believe this is the best of the lot, but not by much - there are many others which are close behind. If you haven't got any of Peggy's music, this is a great place to start - but after hearing this, you will surely be tempted to buy more.

Format: Audio CD
I'm crazy about "Mink Jazz". It's the kind of album you hope a singer is going to make - great songs, impeccably singing, terrific backing. I'd imagine most people tend to think of Peggy Lee in a string/brass setting, but it's on this record that you really hear her in her element as a musician. Possessed of a low-key, intimate delivery, Peggy worked best (in my opinion at least) with a smallish combo, and that's what we have here, a group of the West Coast's finest aiding and abetting Peggy in her oh-so-cool renditions. Great songs, too: I fell in love with "Whisper Not" (can anyone swing as subtly as Peggy?), "Cloudy Morning" (gorgeous ballad) and really jumping versions of "As Long As I Live" and "I Won't Dance".

Grandiose as it may sound, I think this album encapsulates everything Peggy Lee brought to jazz/pop singing. It's a classic.

On my Desert Island Top 5 list 17 Oct 2002
By Dennis Raffelock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I got my first copy of this album used in the mid 70's. Since then I have probably added another 20 Peggy Lee albums to my collection trying to find something similar, but nothing I have found has come anywhere close.
This is an exquisite album. Not only Peggy's voice at her finest, both her swinging and sexy airy ballads, but some of the finest West Coast jazz players backing her from any era. Most notably on this album, Jack Sheldon plays some of the tastiest trumpet of all time, with no wasted notes and all brilliant, melodic, captivating ideas. Don't go through life without hearing this recording. It is a masterpiece.

Peg's Best 17 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Peggy Lee snuck in the recording of "Mink Jazz" by recording tracks over more than a year's time at recording sessions for pop albums. Basically "Mink Jazz" was recorded at the sessions for "Sugar and Spice" and "I'm A Woman." Capitol did release it, though using the same cover photo as for "I'm A Woman," which was released on the same day as "Mink Jazz." As it turned out "Mink Jazz" was a big seller and Peggy Lee's best album. She simply is matchless as she perfectly interprets great standards to superb jazz accompaniments. The recording quality is excellent, too. This is one of the great albums of all time and still sounds fresh and exciting. Don't miss it.

Haunting, enchanting, exquisite, MINK! 13 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Peggy Lee is my absolutely #1 female vocalist. Whatever she sings - it's a sheer delight to listen to those incredibly beautiful sounds she produces. But this particular recording is definitely one of Miss Lee's milestones: she rarely sang jazz. But when she DID she beat almost all "jazz-singers" hands down. Enjoy!

A Beautiful Trance! 26 Sep 2006
By Wayne Dawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Peggy Lee had a hypnotic sense of inner space. She could slow the blues down to a breathless stillness like a shimmering apparition to a dream; I'm A Fool To Want You is unforgettable. Whisper Not and Close Your Eyes are full of milk and honey swing, the trumpet of Jack Sheldon a perfect, delectable double. The overall orchestration is very satisfying with tastefully chosen instruments spotlit on several tracks. Peggy Lee was one of the few female singers who didn't incur the lashings of Billie Holiday's sharp tongue. Billie loved her and recognised Peggy's individual talent as an exception to so many of her imitaters. To emphasise the point, Mink Jazz could be seen as a counter poise to Billie Holiday's Lady In Satan, and even if this was fancifully the case, Peggy's own style shines through, thats why Billie loved her.
