O’s Notes: Yvonne is a veteran entertainer, both singing and acting. Her voice is very dramatic, fluttering with lots of inflections. It is a style not used a lot today but still holds up. She sings fourteen standards nicely arranged by Neal Kirkwood (p, vibes). Highlights are “Say It Isn’t So”, “Am I Blue” and “Lamento”. The sax shadowing by Jed Levy on “You’ve Changed” and harmonica from Toots Thielemans on “Alright, Okay, You Win” are noteworthy embellishments.
