This review is from: Don't Go To Strangers (Audio CD)
I bought this record when it originally came out in 1960 and it has always remained one of my favourites. She tends towards a Billy Holiday style, but with her own modern intonation and the small backing group is very sympathetic. In particular, Frank Wess on flute and tenor sax, gives just the right level of support, and the whole group work well together. If I had to give a favourite track then it would be 'Where or When'. If you do not know Etta Jones and you like female jazz singers then buy it, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This singer should be much better known!, 21 Sep 2012
This review is from: Don't Go To Strangers (Audio CD)
Etta has an excellent voice, which she uses to great effect. She plays around with the words, finding exactly the right timing and intonation to make them come to life. I've never heard "Bye Bye Blackbird" make such an effect before - I dismissed the lyrics as silly but here they actually make sense.

Here's a singer who can sing a line like "I could change the grey skies to blue if I had you" and make it touch your heart.

If you don't know Etta, you have a treat in store!
