Although Aretha Franklin is known for her larger than life soulful R&B vocals, this album sees her at her jazziest. If she had wanted to concentrate on this one area of her talent, she would still be ruling it.

"One of the great myths in music is that Aretha didn't blossom until she signed with Atlantic. It may be true commerciallky, but her ten LPs or so with Columbia are still... well... this is Aretha for goodness' sake. This set - recorded live at New York's Columbia Studios, as opposed to at a gig in a club - shows her taking control of at least three genres, from blues to jazz to standards, with emphasis on the jazz, and she simply soars past Dinah, Sarah and Billie on material like 'Misty' and 'Trouble In Mind'. Don't let the pro-Atlantic mythology overshadow this superb-sounding gem from 1965, which also features Kenny Burrell on guitar as a bonus.
