Description by OLDIES.com:

Betty Bennett was an acclaimed singer with Woody Herman before becoming a popular jazz vocalist in the mid-'50s. Lurlean Hunter's "Blue & Sentimental" is a marvelous companion to Bennett. A superior pop singer influenced by jazz, Hunter crosses stylistic lines in this program of classic tunes. Personnel on Bennett's album include Andre Previn, Jimmy Giuffre and Shelly Manne. Guitarist Jim Hall and pianist Jimmy Jones are among the players on "Blue."

This Collectables reissue combines similar, out of print sessions from the vaults of Atlantic by two relatively esoteric jazz and pop singers, Betty Bennett and Lurlean Hunter. On Nobody Else but Me from 1956, the sultry pop/jazz vocals of Bennett are combined with five arrangements by Shorty Rodgers, six with her then husband Andre Previn on several standards by the Gershwin Brothers, and Rodgers & Hart. Blue and Sentimental was recorded four years later by Hunter. Lurlean Hunter's Sarah Vaughan-influenced vocals are utilized on a similar set of 11 standards (with the Count Basie-penned title track), arranged and conducted by Jimmy Giuffre with a better than average jazz combo including Harry "Sweets" Edison, Bud Freeman, and Jim Hall. ~ Al Campbell
