The strength of this album lies in the fact that "Sassy" sings with such a small group of instrumentalists. Consequently her tremendous vocal range shines through. With devine attention to detail she picks-up every nuance of mood, but never looses her ease of delivery. Where others who might follow her sound clinical, Sassy is never anything less than sublime perfection. If you love jazz but don't have this record, shame on you. One the other hand, if you only have room in your collection for one vocal jazz offering, this really should be it.
