Magical!
Jacqui Simmons has a smooth singing style that immediately relaxes the listener. She sings with sincerity and intelligence. The first thing that struck me about her singing was the the way she shapes the "O" vowel, which sounds very reminiscent of Doris Day, especially on the song "I Remember You." Jacqui Simmons is class personified!!!

Ten great standards sung straight. This CD is propelled by Larry Eanet at the p
Classy rendering of ten great jazz standards, delivered in a tasty, no-frills alto. Even the ballads swing, thanks in large part to the four awesome back-up players, with Larry Eanet on piano absolutely flawless.

Every song brings back pleasant memories!!
How can you review the CD without reviewing the artist? Jacqui gives such class to the standards as well as the modern tunes. I hope that this CD is just the beginning of a phenomenal collection of hits......Grammy and American Music Award material......Eureka!!!
