An obscure little album of jazz vocals – but a great one! Janet Brace has a style that's similar to Jackie Cain
or Chris Connor during the same time – kind of light and floating, but with a deeper sadness that makes the tracks stand out from the usual vocal fluff – a rich sort of feeling, but one that's never overly sentimental or romantic either! The backings help a lot to set the mood – handled by a quartet led by Don Elliott on vibes, trumpet, and flugelhorn – and featuring Joe
Puma or Barry Galbraith on guitar, Bob Corwin on piano, Vinnie Burke on bass, and Jimmy Campbell on drums. Really wonderful material from that magical 1956 year, when ABC recorded so many great jazz sessions – with titles that include "You Forgot Your Gloves", "Skylark", "I'm A Person Too", "Easy Street", "Happy In Love", and "It Could Happen To You".
