Debby Moore, who once sang with Earl Hines, was a Fifties pop singer whose light, warmly caressing voice and ability to read a lyric and phrase well showed a frank jazz awareness. It’s no surprise, then, that she was able to get a quintet of this quality for this mix of blues and standards. Although group is cast in a mainly accompanying role, it could call on Sweets Edison’s swinging solos and delightful backing for the singer"who also contributes the novelty of whistling on a couple of tracks in a style not unlike the trumpeter’s"as well Jimmy Jones’s elegant soloing and Barry Galbraith’s funky guitar. The result was a consistently interesting debut session, with the singer generating her lithe, detached swing and getting her own groove going.
