"This musical program recalls the Swing Era at its finest. For many jazz lovers, the small bands of that period represented the finest flowering of the genre, and it is to these vital little groups that Varro and his colleagues pay homage."
—Duncan Schiedt, veteran writer and photographer of jazz since 1939.
