A youthful Marge Dodson made her recording debut with these two albums for Columbia, In the Still of the Night, in 1959, and New Voice in Town, in 1960. On them she revealed a warm, sultry voice, and a distinctively personal, jazz-inflected style marked by an honest consideration for the lyrical content of the song, enabling her to switch from moody ballads to swingers with facility. On top of these artistic qualities, in her live presentations she had a combination of glamour, taste and humor that connected with audiences and saw her hailed as a great new singing find.

Her repertoire on these albums covered most of the better standards, and the tasteful arrangements by Michael Colicchio and her husband Coleridge Perkinson provided an engaging framework.
