The singing of American Vernacular music (a better term perhaps than popular music, since so many of the pop" songs of the time are now perceived as classic art) had a strong Irish cast, as in the work of Morton Downey, Kenny Baker, and others, or the belting vaudevillian tradition of Jolson. Then came the naturalists, particularly Frank Sinatra, of whom it has been said he was to American singing what Montgomery Clift was to American acting. And among the women, of his equivalent was and still is the incredibly masterful Peggy Lee.

Reviews

"We find her here, in exquisite settings arranged by pianist Mike Renzi on a label well known for recording excellence. Lee, happily, is up to the treatment, which showcases her singing and lyric-writing. She is able to evoke both passion and potential heartache, sometimes in the same phrase...Her adorned delivery puts the lyrics at center stage and highlights her every vocal nuance."
