Slow time gives this rendition its charm.

About the Album

The song "The Nearness of You" is one of my very favorite standards. Dena Taylor's rendering is outstanding. She captures the seduction of the lyrics with her lilting vocals. This classy, mellow arrangement (especially the jazz guitar) conjures images of a a roaring fire, bottle of good wine, and a slow dance with the one you love. - Bree Noble, Women of Substance Radio
