In a 1954 review, Down Beat magazine praises the album, saying, “The set is an experience in mounting pleasure that can do anything but increase still further no matter how often the LP is replayed. As for comparing it with earlier Teddy Wilson-Billie sessions, what’s the point? Count your blessings in having both. Speaking of time, Billie’s beat and variations thereon never cease to be among the seven wonders of jazz.”
Two recordings, “What a Little Moonlight Can Do” and “I Cried for You” were also recorded by Holiday in the 1930s with Teddy Wilson’s band, at the beginning of her career.
