"Jimmy Scott recorded several well-received sides for Savoy during the '50s then in 1962 went to Ray Charles' newly formed Tangerine label and recorded the long-lost classic Falling In Love Is Wonderful. A densely romantic and heartbreakingly open collection of love songs -- ballads so sincerely delivered in such a perfect voice. Here is a voice and music of another time, combining to create a vocal jazz masterpiece. Gerald Wilson and Marty Paich arranged the tunes, Joe Adams produced, and Ray Charles played piano on all tracks and 'supervised.' Unfortunately, Falling In Love Is Wonderful disappeared virtually as soon as it was released. A contractual dispute arose with Jimmy's previous label, and Tangerine pulled the new record from stores. This angelic album represents Jimmy Scott at his peak: this record is vital." 180 gram vinyl.
