a.k.a. "This Is Anita"

About the album, in her autobiography, High Times, Hard Times, Anita O'Day said "Buddy [Bregman] looked over the list. "Hey," he said, "Anita and I both went to Senn Jr. High." Norman[Granz] didn't see anything to get excited about in that. Then Buddy added, "Okay, I'll take a chance on O'Day."

"Those seven words put me back in the business because I hadn't recorded with a full band for eight years. Everything, like, fell into place from the beginning. Ours was to be the first album on the new label-Verve 2000. All the tunes Buddy chose (and Norman okayed) were good. Not two tunes out of twelve, not six out of twelve, but twelve out of twelve were groovy songs that ordinary people as well jazz buffs liked."
