Description:
"Dan Barrett has once more put together a swing session which is neither buried in the past nor draped over today«s trendy jazz clichs. Rather, it just glows in the light of a timeless and inspired musicianship....Rebecca Kilgore has gradually refined her vocal gifts and stands now, I believe, as a leading interpreter of America«s classic popular songs. Her easy, musicianly way of bringing forth each tune«s best qualities is very special, carefully nurtured artistry.? Ò Dick Hadlock, author of Jazz Masters of the Twenties and host of The Annals of Jazz, on KCSM-FM San Mateo, California.
