Description:
"Donna and Herb have drawn on the legacy of their enshrined forebears« musicality and togetherness. They have absorbed the social and musical changes since those days. And they Ò and their four long-time colleagues on this disc Ò have found a new and refreshed but still classic and still wonderfully listenable jazz . . . There«s a oneness as well as twoness in marriages and in music, when a voice and a horn are always there for each other, in today«s clich, and also give each other space. Think of Lee Wiley and Bobby Hackett. Think of Billie Holiday and Lester Young. Then think again. It«s half a century later. When Billie sings No More she«s a woman turning from a no-good man with aching resignation. In Donna«s No More you know this woman is going to slam the door and have a life.? Ò Roderick Nordell
