“Sorta Kinda,” with guest vocals by Wendy Gilles, percolated brightly, thanks to the typically astute drumming of Lewis Nash. Ms. Gilles fared even better with “We Knew It All the Time,” in an arrangement (written for Fran Warren) that beautifully framed the singing.

"Can't We Talk It Over" is a gorgeous ballad with a cool cushion of a brass, reeds and rhythm behind vocalist Wendy Gilles, whose horn like delivery sounds like something straight out of the mid-forties.
AllMusic ~ Ken Dryden
Vocalist Wendy Gilles delivers an infectious performance in the ballad "Beg Your Pardon.
Singer Wendy Gilles does a marvelously nuanced job, ranging from fullscale angst to playful cajolery on Can’t We Talk It Over, over a pillowy backdrop with Evans’ signature high reed/low brass dichotomy. Later on, she offers an elegantly cheery take of Sunday Drivin’. . . . Then the band makes a medley of Easy Living, Everything Happens to Me – centered around Gilles’ heartfelt, angst-driven, tersely bluesy phrasing.

Other gems from Evans’s Thornhill catalog are “Can’t We Talk It Over,” “Gypsy Jump,” Sunday Drivin’” and the ten-minute “Easy Living Medley,” which features the superb vocals of Wendy Gilles.
Wendy Gilles sings it and absolutely knocks it out of the park with her coy, split-second, spot-on melismas.
