Inside The Groove

Helen Merrill's last EmArcy LP fully warm moods.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Helen Merrill's last LP on EmArcy label. Unlike her other EmArcy LPs, this LP features delightful and warm moods, which is also fascinating. Also, the appearance of Bill Evans on piano must be noted here.

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

9 out of 10
