Helen Merrill is in top form throughout this session, backed by pianist Torrie Zito 's thoughtful arrangements. Merrillwho improvises like a member of the band, always knows the possibilities within each song she performs and finds a way to make it her own. A good part of the LP includes bossa nova tunes, highlighted by her deliberate lyrical treatment of "Wave," in which Zito is her sole accompanist.
Her silken voice is wrapped in strings for the lush takes of "So Many Stars" and "Like a Lover," with Bucky Pizzarelli providing So Many Stars - Helen Merrill - Casa Forte perfect touch on guitar.
