Entertainment Reviews:

JazzTimes - 8/97, p.83
"...Etta Jones stamps her indelible mark on each track....joyfully present is the robust underpinning of long-time tenor associate Houston Person. The result is a satisfying package that...displays the deep soulful meaning that Ms. Jones brings to jazz singing..."

On The Melody Lingers On, Etta Jones pays tribute to ten departed members of show business, with one song apiece saluting Phyllis Hyman, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Sammy Davis, Jr, Billy Eckstine, Alberta Hunter and Sarah Vaughan. The singer does not attempt to emulate any of these greats, and instead sings in her own soulful bluesy style. As usual, Houston Person's tenor is a strong asset while the backup group also features spots for violinist Tom Aalf and pianist Dick Morgan. Fine music. ~ Scott Yanow
