Overview

A fine singer who unfortunately passed away too young, Trudy Desmond is heard in top form on her third recording. Her delivery is basic and lightly swinging on a variety of standards and obscurities, with the highpoints including "You'd Better Love Me," "The Best Thing For You," "Falling In Love With Love" and "Too Close For Comfort." Desmond uses a variety of different personnel including a couple different rhythm sections (with Bill Charlap, Mike Renzi or Don Thompson on piano) and appearances by guitairst Ed Bickert, tenor-saxophonist Rick Wilkens, Tom Szezesniak on accordion and a string quartet on various cuts. This was one of Trudy Desmond's finest efforts, making one particularly wish that she had stuck around longer.
