Although Sue Raney has recorded lots of commercial jingles, she has also performed with Supersax and others, including recordings with Michel Legrand and Henry Mancini. On what was basically a series of recording sessions with Raney and a trio of piano, bass, and drums, “You Must Believe in Spring” features a poignant rubato duet by the singer and pianist Bob Florence. Raney’s pure voice, precise pitch, and impeccable phrasing are framed by the consummate accompaniment of Florence, who also conceived and arranged the album.
