This is terrific! It’s a perfect balance between specific musical thoughts, and historical facts that I feel will appeal to both the musician and the music lover. It’s meaningful, but not too heavy.

— Liany Mateo

Jersey Jazz Rising Star, October 2023

Wow, this is really impressive. So well-researched, and so very well-written. All I wanted from this tour was to help put these young people into the music, tell their story and show how these classic songs still have lots of space for young singers to leave their mark. You hit it on the head. Thank you so much!
