Jazz fans may find it hard to track down a copy of this recording, only available on Japanese import. But it's worth the effort. Scott has surrounded herself with a great band, and she is singing at top form. The rhythm section offers the gentlest of cushions to her heartfelt vocal, and Peplowski shows he could make his mark in the world if he just focused on tenor sax. We have heard many versions of this Cole Porter standard over the years, but this is a welcome addition.
