“Great small group work from singer Jeri Southern – a group so small, the set also features the vocalist on piano! If you only know some of Jeri’s more fully-produced albums of the 50s and 60s, you’ll really be surprised here – as the singer works in a great small club setting with this open, personal approach that rivals the hipper jazz singers of the time – territory that hipper listeners always knew Southern could hit, even though her records of the period didn’t get that far! The strength of her piano work is quite a surprise, as is her ability to really open up her vocals – and the package presents a full club performance for the first time ever, with backing from Al Bruno on bass and Dominic Simonetta on drums.” – Dusty Groove
