Some of the songs here may be familiar to fans of the Great American Songbook, but Betty's versions are distinctive. Betty was not one to pander to commercialism so her records were not promoted as much as they deserved, despite the enthusiastic support of Ray Charles, who recorded some duets with her (not included here). Betty's music is rooted in jazz but has plenty of soul in it. Betty could sing ballads and up-tempo songs equally effectively, though the up-tempo songs allow her excellent musicians to show their talents also and I generally prefer these.
The most familiar songs here are You're getting to be a habit with me (recorded by many singers from Bing Crosby in the thirties to Diana Krall in the nineties, but Betty's version is among the best), But beautiful, Something wonderful, What a little moonlight can do (my favorite here - a truly outstanding version of this classic up-tempo song), Mean to me, I don't want to set the world on fire, Stormy weather (normally associated with Lena Horne or Ethel Waters, but there have been countless versions) and My reverie (originally sung by Bea Wain).
If you enjoy the music of Sarah Vaughan or Billie Holliday, you may find Betty's music to your liking. Despite the absence of her duets with Ray Charles (available elsewhere), this is a fine representation of Betty's music.
