Personnel: Etta James; Eddie Harris (saxophone); Cedar Walton (piano); Paul Humphrey (drums).
Not to be confused with MCA's 2001 collection of the same title, this 15-song RCA Victor set was released in 2006. Interestingly, the compilation focuses on James's contemporary recordings (as opposed to her more celebrated material from the 1960's) and leans heavily on her readings of old standbys from the Great American Songbook. James's blues- and gospel-drenched voice still sounds great, though, and she shows she's as capable of handling jazz gems like "Body and Soul" and "My Funny Valentine" as she is R&B faves like "Try A Little Tenderness."
