A Breath of Fresh Air

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The jazz content of this CD reissue is pretty light as singer Marlene Ver Planck who as usual displays a beautiful voice with a wide range is backed by rather commercial arrangements on a repertoire dominated by then-current show and movie tunes that often sound quite dated today. She certainly does her best as can be heard on wordless versions of "Baby Elephant Walk" and "Mission Impossible" but Ver Planck's later recordings are much more valuable from the jazz standpoint.
