5.0 out of 5 stars First and Last June 14, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Southern Breeze" was the first of Jeri's three albums on Roulette, a great Marty Paich-arranged album with a scorching vocal on "Porgy" and a lot else going for it. "Coffee..." was the last Roulette album, arranged hauntingly by Lennie Hayton, who really knew how to showcase Jeri's voice and style. This is one of the truly great torch albums, a legend in its time. Both albums add up to great listening and you'll play them over and over because there's so much to hear each time in Jeri's interpretations.

4.0 out of 5 stars More fine Jeri work - plus Marty Paich! September 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
A reissue of two LPs, the first featuring Jeri with a fine Marty Paich band, with a refreshing choice of repertoire. The orchestra on the second is a bit on the slushy side, but also has excellent songs. Highlights are 'Isn't it a lovely day' and 'Spring will be a little late this year'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Torch music of the highest quality January 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Two albums from 1958 filled with love songs from an even earlier era sung by what I regard as the finest torch singer of the lot - that's what you get here. eri knew her limitations and worked within them, singing only ballads with only a little variation in tempo, which won't suit everybody but I love it. On these albums, Jeri is backed by an orchestra, which manages to restrain itself nicely.

Drawing on songs composed by some of America's finest songwriters of the first half of the last century (Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Irving Berlin, Yip Harburg and others), these two albums feature a few famous songs such as Lazy bones and Yesterdays, but however famous or obscure the songs, Jeri's performances are impeccable.

There are so many great songs here but among the highlights are Down with love, Ridin' high, I like the likes of you, Spring will be a little late this year, Deep in a dream and Maybe I love you too much.

If you are a fan of Jeri's music, or if you enjoy the music of Peggy Lee, Julie London, June Christie, Gogi Grant and other similar singers, you'll love this twofer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two orchestral winners from Jeri Southern April 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD
For me, these are two of the best Jeri Southern LPs to illustrate her skill as a torch singer. In All the tracks were recorded on LP in 1958 and transferred to CD in 1998. Southern Breeze is backed by the Marty Paich Orchestra. There's a good mix of the wistful (`Then I'll be tired of you') with the up-tempo (Porter's `Ridin' high'), where Paich's Dektette background provides a jazz backing. But I think Jeri's at her best and most distinctive in the slower melodies where she always makes the lyrics count.

On the second LP transfer Jeri is accompanied by the Lennie Hayton Orchestra. Some of my favourite Southern interpretations are here: `Spring will be a little late this year', `This time the dream's on me', `Yesterdays', `Deep in a dream', `I'll never be the same'. But perhaps I shouldn't pick out tracks because Jeri does a great job with her warm sultry voice on all of them.
