"Having known Helen Merrill almost since the start of her career, I hear in her, today more fully than ever, the same qualities that marked those early recording with Cifford Brown and Gil Evans and all the other giants on the sessions that established her, at least among the cognoscenti, as the owner of a very special sound (variously called smoky, misty, veiled, gentle) and a sensitive understanding of phrasing." – Leonard Feather
