..."Marlene VerPlanck remains at the top of her field"...

" This is an elegant compilation of standards, familiar and neglected, as well as a few numbers you’re unlikely to know. VerPlanck has a way of sharing discoveries. Vocals are so fluid, they sound like breathing. A mellow CD supported by musicians with unquestionable finesse." -- Alix Cohen for Cabaret Scenes
