11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Caponsacchi HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 25, 2008
Format: Audio CD
In the department of female vocalists jazz has been blessed with some of the most undeniably virtuoso singers of the past and present century--from Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan to Diane Shuur and Roberta Gamberini. But the music has also allowed for the inclusion of sensitive artists who, while not possessing the most formidable instruments and technique, were compelling if not hypnotic story-tellers, capable of getting to the essence of the best songs from that treasure trove known as "The Great American Songbook" and of bringing them to vibrant life, frequently exceeding the readings of the performers for whom the songs were originally written.

Helen Merrill is in the same league as Billie Holiday, someone who tells the song's emotional story and does so without the least trace of exhibitionism or, simply, the need to "impress." American popular song is, above all, the art of artlessness, the elevation of the "common individual" in the democratic American dream quilt over the elite and aristocratic, the privileging of the "natural" over anything overtly artificial in terms of diction, elocution, or projection. Those qualities may be present in the performer's consciousness, but rarely can they afford to call attention to themselves. With a range at one point of less than an octave, and with failing breath reserves, Billie Holiday could still tap profound emotions by making music that seemed as effortless, unforced, natural as the ripening of fruit on the vine.

Helen Merrill has many of the same traits, though in some respects hers is the purest aesthetic of them all. Listening to her, I'm not reminded of a personal biography or of personal circumstances extraneous to the music itself.

Heaven is an overused adjective. However, I cannot find a truer word to describe Helen Merrill's voice and artistry. Also, Gil Evans never steps on her feet. He is as nimble and sensitive as Fred Astaire was when dancing with Ginger Rogers.

Really enjoyed the CD. Helen is an exceptional singer. Highly recommend the CD of a singer who doesn't get much recognition and is over shadowed by Ella, Sarah, Diana etc. Going to look for more of her music.

Bought it for the lovely Gil Evans arrangements, keep coming back for the pretty singing. One of the most laid-back & wonderful recordings I've picked up in a while.
