The earliest work we've ever seen from Azie Mortimer – a hip album of vocal jazz tracks that predates some of her later soul material! Azie's got a really great style – lean, expressive, and with these great elements that really take her past more conventional jazz vocals – still inside, but with a cool groove that's definitely trying for more than the usual. Some moments have a 60s groovy swing, but still with a good deal of soul in the mix – and the set features arrangements by Mercer Ellington, and a group that includes Phil Woods on alto, Harold Ashby and Jerome Richardson on tenor, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and Mundell Lowe on guitar. The best cuts include an uptempo version of "Milestones", plus readings of "On Green Dolphin Street", "Capricious", and "Whisper Not".
