Several noted jazz artists such as drummer Frank Capp, bassist John Leitham, guitarist John Pisano, and bassist Brian Bromberg join the string sections from the Orchestras of Don Bagley (ex-Stan Kenton bassist) and Jimmy Haskell. Corky splits her time on the session equally between piano and harp with five tracks each; other pieces employ her on the vibes and synthesizer. Songs are taken from various songwriters that she has worked with including Bacharach & David, Leiber & Stoller, Marilyn & Alan Bergman and Livingston & Evans.
In addition to her fascinating harp and piano work, the session highlight stems from Hale's bright refreshing vocal talent. -- L.A. Jazz Scene, October, 1998
