Singer Annie Ross' first solo album after joining Lambert, Hendricks & Ross finds her at the peak of her powers. Ross is joined by two versions of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet with either Chet Baker or Art Farmer on trumpet, Bill Crow or Henry Grimes on bass and drummer Dave Bailey. Annie Ross is at her best (and most appealing) on "I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face," "Give Me The Simple Life," "How About You" and "The Lady's In Love With You," but all of the selections are quite rewarding and her interplay with baritonist Mulligan is consistently memorable.

Reviewer: Dave
I wasn't sure what to expect from Annie Ross. Well she sings well, but as a soloist she's relatively weak in interpretive skills. Her voice is accurate, but lacking rich texture.

Still, I thought that might have been made up by the help Mulligan, Baker and Farmer and fortunately that turns out to be the case. The guys are in one channel and Annie in the other and there's good interplay between she and the horns and the horns with each other. Drums and bass are supportive and well recorded. I suspect that these are blowing session type arrangements, but it works well.

The pressing is very good. Dave
