The husky timbre of Dori’s voice, her delayed-action vibrato, and her swinging approach to a tune are what one would expect from just about any great female jazz singer in the Fifties. Leading the quintets here were two top instrumentalists, Don Elliot and Eddie Costa, acclaimed by jazz followers everywhere.
“Jane Brace looks like a schoolgirl lost in a nitery,” wrote a reviewer. Janet owned a voice capable of handling any dynamics that the situation called for—an instrument that allowed her to turn the end of a smoky, tender phrase into a kind of vocal overdrive. Her soft, intimate quality comes through handsomely thanks to excellent backing by the Don Elliott Quintet.
