This sophisticated jazz album was recorded between the 30 November and 16 December 1961. It is Doris’s biggest departure away from her usual “safe” haven of pop music. A drastically remade version of Close Your Eyes, a ballad that Doris had first recorded on her album Day by Night, sets an impressive precedent to how this album is to progress. Previn’s arrangements allow Doris’s vocal genius to shine through without distraction. The climax of this remarkable LP is Marlene Dietrich’s hit song “Falling in Love Again”. The US CD re-issue includes two additional songs that were excluded from the original LP release: “You’re Good For Me” & “In Love In Vain”.
