I can't believe I've never come across Ernestine Anderson. What an incredible, sultry voice. This album knocked me out. Great song selection, great arrangements, great sidemen: Yusef Lateef, Hank Jones, Kenny Burrell, Art Taylor, et. al. After reading a little about Ernestine, it seems she peaked at the wrong time as popular music pushed out jazz vocalists in the early 1960s. She got completely gypped. Ernestine deserved to be a household name. The album starts out with a great swinger "My Kinda Love." Here she shows her strength and incredible height in a relaxed, fun way. "It Don't Mean a Thing," showcases her great sense of rhythm and phrasing. Her touch on ballads like "Trouble is a Man," and "Lazy Afternoon" is simply gorgeous! Ernestine is a jewel!
