Sophie Grimm proved that youth also has something significant to say about Billie Holiday. Rare is the emerging singer who can convey the kind of presence, conviction and utter lack of affectation that Grimm brought to every phrase of “Good Morning Heartache,” complete with exquisitely polished scat singing that justly earned ovations before the tune was finished. The unhurried tempo and sweeping lines Grimm mined in “Crazy He Calls Me” were similarly effective. Imagine the art of Holiday filtered through the sensibility of the great Doris Day, and you have a sense of where Grimm was coming from.” - Howard Reich
