Reviewers

  • Jane Monheit is skyrocketing up the jazz charts. By next year, we won't be able to get her.
    • Newstimeslive.com (7/27/2005) comment from Allison Stockel, artistic director of the Ridgefield (Connecticut) Playhouse.
  • It [Ella Fitgerald's "Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas"] is the happiest Christmas album I've ever heard. That album totally changed the way I look at Christmas albums. I loved what a happy, festive album it truly was . . . it's the best [[music] to have playing when you have a Christmas celebration. I wanted my album to feel just like that.
