, who helps keep a hip, modern feel going on – and avoids some of the obvious vocal cliches of the time! Ann's a singer with a rich voice, both on ballads and uptempo numbers – but one that's never too overly-emotive or sentimental, in a way that makes her a perfect fit for Lawrence
's well-penned backings here – supported by players who include Al Cohn on tenor, Nick Travis on trumpet, Eddie Bert on trombone, and Hal McKusick on alto sax. Titles include "Sweet & Lovely", "Lover Come Back To Me", "What'll I Do", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Love Is Just Around The Corner", and "Back In Your Own Backyard".
