Peggy Lee is heard here singing before a live audience, accompanied by the top-drawer piano of George Shearing. Cole Porter's "Do I Love You?" is transformed by Lee's relaxed voice and the Shearing quintet's delicate bounce. The music seems to become a multi-sensory experience; "If Dreams Come True" could fool you into thinking you were running through a field of clover on a sunny spring day.
Lee has impeccable taste in material; "All Too Soon," an engaging piece of Ellingtonia, is a typical example. Her performance of "I Lost My Sugar in Salt Lake City" is a stirring blues predating her studio recording by three years while Shearing's piano and quintet mirror Lee's gentle emotions on "There'll Be Another Spring"; the sensitive backing is perfect.
