Mint 1965 Stereo Original In Shrink Wrap. “Like Many Vocalists Of Her Time, Joni James Embraced The Latin And South American Rhythms That Musically Invaded North America In The Mid-'60s. Her Sublimely Tempered Intonations, Coupled With Chuck Sagle's Equally Enchanting Arrangements, Were Firmly Behind The Critical And Artistic Success Of Bossa Nova Style. The Dozen Sides Which Comprise This Long-Player Reflect James' Versatile Performance Style On Some Of Pop Music's Most Sinuous And Sensual Compositions. Without A Doubt, These Lushly Orchestrated Tracks Reveal The Singer's Penchant For Passionate Material. This May Also Account For Her Successful Performances In Cuba, Mexico, As Well As Central And South America To Primarily Non-English-Speaking Audiences. Much Like Her Decidedly More Masculine Pop Vocal Counterpart, Frank Sinatra, James' Inspired Interpretations Of These Standards Became The Hallmark For Those Who Followed Her Lead. From The Gentle And Languid Readings Of "While We're Young" And The Haunting "Dindi" To The Breezy Samba Of "Once I Loved" Or The Delightfully Lilting "I Could Have Danced All Night," It Very Well Seems That Joni James Has Rarely Been More In Her Element Than She Is Here. Even The Rich And Mellow Arrangement Of Seminal Sides Such As "Girl From Ipanema" Or "My Romance" And "You're Nearer" -- A Pair Of Richard Rodgers/Lorenz Hart Tunes That Conclude This Album -- Are Unmistakably Amended To Suit James' Trademark Easygoing And Unencumbered Style.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.
