Delloreese Patricia Early (July 6, 1931 – November 19, 2017), known professionally as Della Reese, was an American jazz and gospel singer, actress, and ordained minister whose career spanned seven decades. Her long career began as a singer, scoring a hit with her 1959 single "Don't You Know?". In the late 1960s she hosted her own talk show, Della, which ran for 197 episodes.

Della Reese was never a hardcore jazz singer. Her specialty was traditional pre-rock pop, and unlike jazz-oriented singers - Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, and Carmen McRae, among many others - she was not. Therefore, her work must be judged by pop standards instead of jazz standards. Anyone who isn't a myopic jazz snob realizes that pop standards aren't necessarily low standards; in fact, traditional pop singers like Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford, Tony Bennett, and the seminal Bing Crosby have had very high standards.

Della Reese is little remembered as the singer she was and she was great. The arrangement by Neal Hefti is excellent and the song selection is outstanding: Goody Goody, I'm Beginning to See the Light, I'll Get By, Blue Skies etc. Also several studio cuts at the end of the album. The album became a Top 40 hit, and landed itself a Grammy nomination the following year. Bluebird re-released this album with superb remastered sound, amazing liner notes, including the original notes, and 12 bonus tracks. The bonus tracks are early rehearsels, and very interesting to listen to. Now, if only they would give the rest of her RCA albums the same treatment.
