Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow

Although there are short spots for the horns and the pianist, along with a couple instrumentals, Christy is the main star throughout, sounding quite youthful and enthusiastic on such songs as "I Can't Believe That You're in Love With Me," "Get Happy," "Lullaby in Rhythm," "They Didn't Believe Me," "There's a Small Hotel," and "I'm Glad There Is You." She is certainly recognizable and sounds happy to be performing in the small-group swing setting. This CD is highly recommended to June Christy fans.
