The early sound of Jack Jones is a mix of Mel Torme's velvet jazz and the mainstream romance of Tony Martin. These 18 hits of his are pretty much straight forward pop ballads, but Jones possesses a rare voice that takes orders directly from the heart, hence the renditions are models of subtle sentiment. He was in his early 20s when these tracks were cut. His appeal and presence hints at the sure-footed and sophisticated interpretations he would sing in the advancing years.
The opening of "Real Live Girl" begins with Jack in a whispering mood that rises to a passionate excitement suiting the palpitating samba rhythm. Harps and violins waft along "You're My Girl," with Jones smoothly stating the melody with exemplary emotion. "A Lot Of Livin' To Do" might be the jazziest of these 18 tracks, having instrumental momentum arranged by the great Marty Paich.
