Swedish Sensation

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Vocal fans would really value a disc that sampled Monica Zetterlund's entire career, especially if it included material from her 1964 collaboration with pianist Bill Evans on Waltz for Debby, but this El set includes recordings from only a single year, 1958, her first as a leader.
