The incredibly versatile Sylvia Syms' style and sound earned her Frank Sinatra's recognition as the "world's greatest saloon singer." Judy Garland, also a big fan, once made Syms sing the same song 16 times at a party! Songs by Hoagy Carmichael, Rodgers & Hart, and Noel Coward are among the highlights of this collection jam-packed with Syms' heartfelt interpretations. Dick Hyman both conducts and arranges on this album.
