“There's quite a lot to like about vocal stylist Queen Esther's reading of the slightly off center songbook of JC Hopkins on What is Love? With her strong and distinctive voice, Esther sings with great feeling and stretches tones a la Sarah Vaughan. Her interpretations of three classic standards ("Stardust," "I Cover the Waterfront," and "I'll Never Be the Same") serve as musical anchors of this recording, from which she takes flight on the seven interesting Hopkins vehicles.”
