Gloria Lynne had her greatest fame during the first half of the 1960s when she recorded quite a few albums for the Everest label. A survivor, Lynne is still in excellent form on From My Heart to Yours, over 40 years later. Her voice remains powerful, soulful, and unwavering; she is not afraid to sing some ballads at a very slow tempo; and she finds surprising life in such usually unworthy material as "My Funny Valentine," "Evergreen," and "Shangri-La." When she tackles a much better song such as "Mountain Greenery" at a medium tempo, it gives one the feeling of exhilaration. Joined by a supportive rhythm section with David "Fathead" Newman's flute added on two numbers, Gloria Lynne has recorded what is arguably her finest album since the 1960s. ~ Scott Yanow
