I bought this on Amazon's recommendation and this time they got me spot on! I've always loved Peggy Lee's voice, but never heard her teamed up with George Shearing until now - what a perfect combination. Lee's inate sense of timing and phrasing combined with Shearing's smooth,swinging delicacy is pure magic. I've never heard the original recording described by other reviewers, but I can't imagine why the record producers felt the need to falsify a live recording by overlaying 'audience' noises when this studio recorded version is so perfect - why try to gild the lily? I can't think of any artists today who have this kind of class and sheer 'star quality' - more's the pity. Just buy it, you won't regret it.
