All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Although she is chiefly known for her movie career, which took off in the late '50s, and pop songs like "Secret Love" and "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)" she recorded concurrently with her screen success, Doris Day was a consummate big-band vocalist in the '40s, and her musical legacy as a singer is ultimately based on those recordings, which will startle and amaze those who are only familiar with her later pop fare.

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
