These vocal jazz masters never disappoint! There is some temptation to overlook Jackie & Roy's later work, with an assumption that only their early work held any value. However, this 1982 session demonstrates just how mistaken we were. Featuring a stellar collection of small group tracks, these songs are delivered with the same sweetness as their best 1950s recordings. The group, including the superb Paul Johnson on vibes, shines as Jackie takes the lead on some songs, duets with Roy on others, and delivers some captivating wordless pieces. Some highlights include "Loving You", "I Watch You Sleep", "Too Marvelous For Words," "Am I Blue," "Bidin My Time," "Mine," and "Joy Spring."
