Liner Note Author: Scott Yanow.
Part of the compilation series Ballad Essentials, this CD features the jazz vocals of Carol Sloane. The vocalist's smoky renditions of such ballads as "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You" and "Moonlight in Vermont" are among the featured songs, previously recorded and released on Sloane's six projects for the Concord Jazz label. However, it is Sloane's work on the Fred J. Coots and Haven Gillespie gem "You Go to My Head" -- featuring Steve Turre's great trombone solo -- that makes this collection of ballads worth the price of the CD. ~ Paula Edelstein
