stamp on back cover.

Inside The Groove

a nice popular singing backed up with jazzy quartet.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Georgia Gibbs, the famous chart hitter mainly in the 1940s-1950s, recorded this jazzy album in her later career. I don't know how her popular singing was in her peak, but this album itself swings well. All tunes are very famous ones full of catchy melodies, with pretty arrangements of a backing-up quartet. That's why this album is very listenable.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
