(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anita Gravine not only brings a fresh perspective to Jazz, but her passion and respect for the artform and her immesurable talent shine through in this masterpiece. With a beauty that few modern singers have, and a deep knowledge of the roots that have made Jazz America's greatest cultural achievent, Ms. Gravine's works touch like few others. The arrangements are masterful, and by bringing her love of the Italian cinema to jazz fans worldwide, she has truly given us all something to cherish. BRAVO!!"
Sophisticated, imaginative, and very musical!

"This is one of the best (and best executed) ideas for a vocal album in years. The titles may be unfamiliar, but they're as well-written as any standard in the American Popular Songbook: lyrical songs, intelligent words, sympathetic and smart arrangements by the great Mike Abene. And Anita Gravine, one of the most underappreciated jazz-influenced singers, brings a sense of great passion without ever losing control of the music or the meaning. If you haven't heard her before, to me, she's a cross between Sarah Vaughan and the wonderful Frances Wayne (who sang with Woody Herman's First Herd of the middle-'40s). If you like the "good" singers doing the "good" songs, do yourself a favor -- try some Lights, Camera, Passion!"
