All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Kevin Mahogany's third and final Enja recording before moving on to Warner Bros. was his finest and a very definitive set. More jazz-oriented than his first Warner Bros. set, this program matches Mahogany's attractive voice with pianist James Williams who contributed the tune "Old Times Sake", bassist Michael Formanek, drummer Victor Lewis and guest tenor Benny Golson. Singer Jeanie Bryson helps out on the opening "Baby You Got What It Takes," making one wish that the two vocalists would team up more often. Other highlights include Quincy Jones' classic "Stockholm Sweetnin'," "Route 66" which has some creative scatting by Mahogany, the brief "Yardbird Suite" and "BG's ...

Throughout this date, Kevin Mahogany formerly a saxophonist who obviously knows music well shows just how strong a jazz singer he can be. Highly recommended.

    Great CD

    I first heard Kevin Mahogany sing "Please Send Me Someone to Love" on NPR, and fell in love with his passionate bluesy style of singing. I tracked down this CD and gave it a listen, and found his vocal style is far greater than I had expected. I now have most of Kevin's output in my collection, and highly recommend this CD and his other works.
