Sandy Graham has such a confident maturity in her delivery that it is difficult to believe that her self-titled disc for Muse is her recording debut as a leader.  Her confidence extends to her choice of material which ranges from "You" (which debuted in the 1930s movie The Great Ziegfield) and a warm "But Beautiful" to a tantalizingly slow rendition of "Whisper Not", "Hey! John" (which I'll always associate with Carmen McRae) and Billie Holiday's "Don't Explain".  Somehow, without scatting or wandering far from these melodies, Graham gives each song an individual approach, making them hers.  Assisted by a supportive rhythm section and the tenor, flute, and baritone of Herman Riley, Sandy Graham makes one wonder why it took so long for her to finally get on a record.
