(2-LP set) I Just Dropped By to Say Hello was recorded in October 1963. You'll find Johnny Hartman in top form throughout this collection of tunes. He is joined by Illinois Jacquet, Kenny Burrell, Jim Hall, Hank Jones, Milt Hinton, and Elvin Jones. This recording has withstood the test of time, giving US the chance to hear his voice again; a perfectly tuned instrument, relaxed, unobtrusive, impeccable and glistening with romance. The "voice that is" wraps himself in such heartfelt ballads as "Charade", "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" and the Ellington Piece, and "Don't You Know I Care." Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes. 45rpm 180 gram vinyl.
