Front cover features a small golden sticker with a jagged edge that reads: Full Range Biasonic Process. I don't know what that is.
Liner notes by Barbara Gardner:
Songs which are heard over the roar of a flaming love affair, blazing strong, are objectively pretty, dispassionately wistful and esthetically beautiful. But let go that gold ring on your merry-go-round; topple from your rocking horse and stand dejected amid the ruins of a topsy-turvy world, with the tattered remains of that shattered romance rustling at your feet; then surely these same songs become painfully personal; mystically prophetic and pitifully hopeful. With a single, definite ''Goodbye'' living takes on a new azure dimension, a feeling of heaviness called the blues. You look at everyone and listen to everything with a new perspective. Yesterday's love songs fit suddenly into today's blues. And that is the essence of this album.
It is a high tribute to her musicianship that Miss Wilson has been recorded with an impressive list of prominent jazz musicians. Her outing here with the blossoming Gerald Wilson big band is a worthy continuation of this tradition.
Gerald Wilson has provided a perfect setting for the singer, and his advanced big band charts skillfully and meaningfully augment every nuance Miss Wilson attempts. That strings need not be saccharine or mushy is capably illustrated here in the execution of the four ballads set against a strings background.
