Overview

Although she didn't have jazz's strongest voice, Jeri Southern's careful, hushed, and unhurried phrasing gives the best of her sides a tremendous intimacy, making it easy to slip into Southern's world, where love forces every hand and nothing comes easy. Strong on moody ballads, Southern's limitations became obvious when she was forced to sing more upbeat novelty numbers, however, and all too often her producers steered her away from her strengths. Luckily there are several moving ballads on this selection of Southern's early years with Decca Records, including her signature "You Better Go Now" and marvelously realized versions of "When I Fall in Love" and "I Thought of You Last Night," making this a decent introduction to Southern's cool method-actor style of singing.
