Karen Johns & Company
Ptarmigan Music

Karen Johns has a cool voice and a natural flair for jazz on this album. "Meglio Stasier (it had better be tonight)" by Henry Mancini hails form the first Pink Panther movie and is sung in Italian by the sweet-voiced Johns. "I Speak Woman, you Speak Man" is an original song with verve and class. Johns' vocal is gorgeous and the backing supple and elegant.

"I Love You Forever" is a swing number with a vocal that's as sweet and expressive as can be. "(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am" is a given a classy, deeply affecting reading. Karen Johns and Company are in a class of their own.
