Album Notes

Originally released on Atlantic (602). Includes liner notes by Alec Wilder and Gary Kramer.

Personnel: Mabel Mercer (vocals).

Liner Note Author: Mary Ellen Mason.

Good two-record anthology that features outstanding cabaret vocalist Mabel Mercer. Her approach was brillant, but not for everyone; it was stiff by jazz phrasing standards, and put far more emphasis on technique than feeling. Yet, few have been better at doing highly stylized material. ~ Ron Wynn
