thinks young here – not in a teen pop sense, but in a style that has plenty of youthful variety in the mix! The album's served up in two different modes – side one is a big band side, with backings from the great Marty Paich – and side two is a live performance, which shows a sweet set of Joanie
that's a bit different than her work in the studio! Paich is great on the jazz sides – giving the music a very groovy feel that pushes past the crossover modes of some of Sommers
' other records, and which really helps Joanie
sound her best. Live tracks also feature a jazz band, but one that's a bit more relaxed – and Sommers
' vocals have this quality that's even more personal in the spontaneous setting. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Hey Jealous Lover", "I Feel Pretty", "Why Shouldn't I", "Everything I've Got", "My Ship", and "Out Of This World".
