    An absolute peice of work, this cd truly illustrates the essence of Gladys Knight, as a woman of through music at its best. Her voice is impecable and so vivid that listeners are drawn into the story of the song. Thank you, Ms. Knight for paying homeage to those before you. I LOVE this cd!

    Yes...I agree Gladys Knight Is great on this album...but HELLOOOO!!!...WANNA KNOW REALLY WHY?...Has anyone even thought of the INCREDIBLE ARRANGER ...AND BAND...that couched her voice so remarkably well here? Not one mention of the arrangers name...and LISTEN to the beautiful lines and horn voicings he wrote behind her. Couldn't have been done better. Listen to how well that band played it! No mention of that arrangers name or anyone in the band in any of the reviews. The band and most of all that arranger made it all work for her. who is he??? who are they???

    I presently only sample Ms. Knights Jazz and can say I still have not heard thus far anything to capture the fullness of what she has to offer in a rare voice, you still have not reached where you need to be Ms. Knight. and I Love still waiting.
  • LOVED THIS !!!!

    Classic songs interpreted by an incredible artist. Ms. Knight brings all of the history of her R&B repertoire and makes classic songs even more classy. Her phrasing and the velvet quality is a different sound coming from her always magnificent set of pipes. I think that any music lover, no matter what genre, is going to enjoy this.
  • Beautiful!

    Gladys Knight's tribute to the great ladies of Jazz is nothing short of excellent! Tommy Li Puma's magic works wonders with Ms. Knight's still powerful voice. A true listening pleasure.

    ONE OF THE BEST VOICES IN MUSIC DOING SOME OF THE BEST SONGS IN RECENT MEMORY. GLADYS KNIGHT SHOWS US ONCE AGAIN WHY COMPOSERS FEEL BLESSED WHEN GLADYS COVERS ONE OF THEIR SONGS - THAT VOICE, THAT GRACE - SHE CAN MAKE ANY SONG HER OWN BUT IS ALWAYS RESPECTFUL OF THE COMPOSER'S ORIGINAL. AND SHE'S BEEN DOING THIS FOR 40 plus YEARS! AND, LIKE THAT FINE WINE, SHE JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER...A GREAT ALBUM BY A SUPREME SONG STYLIST!
