Recorded in the same January 1957 sessions as ‘Body and Soul’ for Verve Records, ‘Songs For Distingue lovers’ was produced by label owner Norman Granz. Her voice by then was no longer the powerful instrument it had been, but there is still that bluesy edginess that distinguished her vocals. Six pop/ Jazz standards are given ‘the lady’ treatment. ‘One For My Baby’ stands out with its languid beauty. ‘Day in Day Out’, ‘A Foggy Day’ and Cole Porter’s ‘Just One Of those Things’ all fine performances.
