Background: Released in 1966, Esther Phillips Sings was the third album by R&B singer Esther Phillips.
The album did not chart.
Though it lacked a big hit (like 1965’s And I Love Him!), Esther Phillips Sings featured a better set of songs and better charts for her to sing in front of. With the opener “It’s All Right With Me” leading the way, Oliver Nelson’s seven arrangements bring out the best in Phillips, giving her plenty of space with light instrumentation but filling any available gaps with his strong, brassy orchestra.
