    Kay Starr, a singer with a tremendous voice, rose to stardom with little assistance from big names, music agents or record companies; it was her artistic excellence and jazz intuition that quickly made her a favorite among the cognoscenti of the music community, and eventually, of the general public.
    This CD gives us a glimpse of the gamut of song styles she put over with such verve and ease. From old time classics like Hoagy Carmichael's bucolic "Lazy River" to the current pop-charts like "Bonaparte's Retreat" and "Wheel Of Fortune," which she established as chartbusters, she gives the music a life and passion with a style that forsakes storytelling, but rather boarders on gospel. Her ability with swingy numbers is unequalled as she has perfect rhythmical intuition, and her tough yet flexible voice heats up such songs as "Comes A-Long-A-Love" and "Slow Boat To China."
