Here we have a typically swinging set by tenorman Scott Hamilton, the majority of which features songs recorded by singer Billie Holiday before World War II—her more carefree period, as mentioned in Bob Porter's liner notes. Accompanied by pianist Tim Ray, bassist Dave Zinno and drummer Jim Gwin throughout—and joined by album producer Duke Robillard on acoustic guitar on “Them There Eyes” and “God Bless the Child”—Hamilton might as well be singing. His delivery is smooth, seemingly effortless and full of perfectly minted phrases. - Owen Cordle, JazzTime Magazine
