From the back cover: A graduate of New York City's famed Juilliard School of Music, Jane Morgan had originally planned to become an operatic soprano. While working her way through Juilliard singing with an orchestra in a local nightclub, Jane decided to turn from classical to popular music. An offer to appear at a top club in Paris prompted her to make another wise decision, and she was off to Paris to star at the Club des Champs Elysees. As her popularity grew in France, offers poured in from all over the Continent, and Jane starred in theaters and supper clubs in Rome, Madrid, Cannes, London and Monte Carlo. At that point, American audiences began clamoring for her to come home. Repeating her European triumphs on her first cross-country tour, she appeared in every major hotel and club throughout the United States and Canada. Jane Morgan became an established international celebrity.

In addition to concerts, recordings and club dates Jane has starred in the musicals "Kiss Me Kate," "Can-Can," "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," "The King and I" and "Lady in the Dark." She appears often on the television shows of Ed Sullivan, Perry Como, Andy Williams, Jimmy Dean and Jack Benny, and on the "Hollywood Palace" and "Tonight" shows.

From Billboard - September 4, 1965: For her Epic Records album debut the distinctive Miss Morgan interprets song hits of other female vocalists in her own commanding style. From Mary Martin's classic "My Heart Belongs To Daddy" to Petula Clark's hit "Downtown," the Morgan versatility and personality are exceptional.
