All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
Jasmine presents a casual overview of selections from Pearl Bailey's first ten years as a recording artist (1945-1955). Picking up where Fats Waller left off, this gorgeous, powerful, and witty woman dismantled all kinds of long-established presentational conventions by half-singing, half-talking her way through every song she ever handled. On this compilation the two best examples of her as a solo act are "I Ain't Talkin'" and "Solid Gold Cadillac." Pearl's collaborations with the Charioteers are fun and her rowdy duets with Hot Lips Page are delightful; "The Hucklebuck" is an intimate riot and "It's a Great Feeling" successfully conveys the optimistic joy of mutual love...

Pearl's collaborations with the Charioteers are fun and her rowdy duets with Hot Lips Page are delightful; "The Hucklebuck" is an intimate riot and "It's a Great Feeling" successfully conveys the optimistic joy of mutual love and affection. "Saturday Night Fish Fry" appears to be a long-lost rehearsal take of the famous Pearl Bailey/Jackie "Moms" Mabley duet of 1949. The inclusion of these wonderful recordings places this little anthology among the best entries in Pearl Bailey's digital discography.

    I'm in love with this CD. I fought it to be full of bitter-sweetness. I brought a copy about 4 years ago and I lost it through an accident but it is so good to me that I am going to purchase another one.
