This is one of her most-overlooked '60s albums, on which she presented some of her jazziest material, despite the title. None of these cuts were significant hits, and none were Aretha originals. But she displayed her characteristically-eclectic taste in choice material, picking compositions by Percy Mayfield, Sam Cooke, Smokey Robinson and, at the most pop-oriented end of her spectrum, John Hartford's "Gentle on My Mind" and Bob Lind's "Elusive Butterfly." Her vocals are consistently passionate and first-rate, as is the musicianship.
