Description
Jazz chanteuse Helen Merrill's first (and some say her finest) album paired her with the great but short-lived trumpeter Clifford Brown, who died 18 months later in 1956. With arrangements by Quincy Jones and featuring an all-star band, the songs include "Falling in Love with Love," "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To," "Born to Be Blue," "What's New," "Yesterdays," "Don't Explain," and an uptempo "'S Wonderful." Introspective, polished, and lyrical, this is an album to return to time and again.

"[Merrill's] spare yet emotionally rich melodicism remains as gorgeous as ever."—NPR

"A winning stylistic combination of cool jazz and hard bop, Merrill particularly excels on Mel Tormé's 'Born to Be Blue,' making the sophisticated tune her own as she revels in Tormé's down-and-out lyric."—Allmusic.com
