After a period off the music scene during which she worked as a nurse, Maxine Sullivan (who had not recorded a full album since 1956) really started her successful comeback with this strong effort. Originally made for Monmouth-Evergreen and later reissued on Audiophile, the set features the subtle and lightly swinging singer sharing the spotlight with Bob Wilber (who doubles on clarinet and soprano in addition to providing the arrangements), pianist Bernie Leighton, bassist George Duvivier and drummmer Gus Johnson. Sullivan performs remakes of "Loch Lomond" and "Gone With the Wind" and also sings ten high-quality swing-era tunes, including most memorably "As Long as I Live," "Darn That Dream" and "Close as Pages in a Book." At 58, Maxine Sullivan (who was still in her musical prime) shows that she still had a long way to go.
