With just guitar and double bass to accompany her, this album has a similar intimacy to "Julie is Her Name (Volume 1)" which featured her classic interpretation of "Cry Me A River" with Barney Kessel's expressive guitar. The ultimate "torch" singer, she injects her own emotional awareness into each song. She can be bright and chirpy but also regretful and reflective. Howard Roberts, replacing Kessel on guitar, responds perfectly and brings his own ultra-hip chordal style to the session, with less counterpoint and more bluesy inflexions than Kessel.
