Singer Annie Ross' first solo album after joining Lambert, Hendricks & Ross finds her at the peak of her powers. Ross is joined by two versions of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet with either Chet Baker or Art Farmer on trumpet, Bill Crow or Henry Grimes on bass and drummer Dave Bailey. Annie Ross is at her best (and most appealing) on "I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face," "Give Me The Simple Life," "How About You" and "The Lady's In Love With You," but all of the selections are quite rewarding and her interplay with baritonist Mulligan is consistently memorable.

Product Reviews:
"Much like Rosemary Clooney, Annie Ross did not rely on vocal gymnastics. Instead she relied on an inborn understanding of how to get inside each song and make it her own, and she had the voice of an angel. Here, she relies on material taken from the Great American Songbook and uses vocal inflection, the beat, and her talent in setting up a verse to make this such an enjoyable album. Listen to the way she sings "Give Me the Simple Life" with Mulligan, Farmer, Crow and Bailey, or "It Don’t Mean a Thing" with Mulligan, Baker, Grimes and Bailey, for two superb examples of the synergy between singer and band." - John Crossett,

"The packaging and sound are first-rate. So well done is this LP that if Pure Pleasure didn’t put the obligatory identifying line on the bottom of the rear cover you might think you had somehow stumbled onto a mint original. The sound is mint as well. Annie Ross’s voice is front and center, full-bodied and realistic. Mulligan’s baritone sax comes off well, sounding full, deep and reedy. Bass is firm, strong and deep, and there’s good snap to the drums." - John Crossett,
