Helyne Stewart was in exceptional company on her 1961 collection of standards, thanks to the efforts of tenor saxophonist Teddy Edwards. He surrounds her vocals with an efficient septet on four tracks that includes Art Pepper (in the last studio appearance before his 1961 incarceration) and two veterans of the Curtis Counce Group, Jack Sheldon and Frank Butler; then fronts a quartet on the remaining titles featuring the phenomenal piano of Phineas Newborn, Jr. Stewart, who attended high school with Miles Davis and worked with Ahmad Jamal and Ray Bryant earlier in her career, brings a fresh and appealing concept to the program, calling upon a neglected vocal giant as she reflects the plain-spoken eloquence of her early idol Ethel Waters.
with Teddy Edwards, Jack Sheldon, Frank Rosolino, Art Pepper, Pete Jolly, Jimmy Bond, Frank Butler, Phineas Newborn, Jr., Leroy Vinnegar, Milt Turner
