Blue Valentines

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Becky Byrkit
This splendid, only occasionally uneven "blue" series continues with an entirely jazzy compilation, packed with inspired songs of love and the love of love.

The jazz instrumentals are the sexiest as well as the most romantic...

The jazz instrumentals are the sexiest as well as the most romantic really!, delivering an affectionate balance of clarinet, drums, and piano on Sonny Clark's "Lover," as well as the bandstand classic "Loverman" with the great Stan Kenton Orchestra. Absolutely no objections here. Stars Peggy Lee, Julie London, Duke Pearson, Lou Rawls, and Hank Mobley win hearts all over again with celebrations of love that really exist, like actual valentines -- no songs of loss or jealousy, no fightin' words. A great garland of love: nothing unrequited here.
