Peggy's upbeat swing platter with the arranger Nelson Riddle is a real treat. Her lean, pinpoint style is highlighted by a lovely voice as she sings a solid mix of standards ("Old Devil Moon," "Cheek to Cheek"), 1920s flapper songs ("Ain't We Got Fun," "When My Sugar Walks Down the Street") and less-exposed tunes (including Duke Ellington's irrepressible title track and the then-new "Just in Time"). Riddle's charts are as swinging and inventive as ever, though this would be his last album with Lee. The bonus cuts show how her airy blues style is perfectly suited to early rock 'n' roll.
