Toni Tennille

There's only one Gershwin tune here—They All Laughed—but like Tennille's first standards collection, this one is an unmitigated pleasure. Sammy Nestico's splashy, swingy arrangements again provide a perfect complement to Tennille's relaxed, seductive vocals. The selections include a number of too-seldom-heard tunes, such as Allen Jones's Easy Street and the Yip Harburg-Arthur Schwartz love song Then I'll Be Tired of You. Tennille's husband, Daryl Dragon, produced and added his synthesizers to a powerhouse big band including trombonist Bill Watrous and pianist Pete Jolly. (Gaia)
