AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Pianist George Shearing and singer Ernestine Anderson (who had teamed up briefly at the 1987 Fujitsu-Concord Jazz Festival) collaborated on this full-length Concord release. With strong assistance from bassist Neil Swainson and drummer Jeff Hamilton, Shearing and Anderson mostly stick to standards and their versions uplift the veteran songs.

“Body and Soul” is taken as a vocal-piano duet, while “The Best Thing for You” is given an instrumental treatment. Other highlights include Anderson’s vocals on “I’ll Take Romance,” a heartfelt “I Remember Clifford,” “On the Sunny Side of the Street” and “Some Other Time.” Perfect Match is an excellent outing for all concerned.
