"Grazyna Auguscik is not merely a vocalist but, rather a musician who has a purpose for every note she sings, for every phrase she lingers upon ? or dramatically cuts short. There are no throwaway notes, no glib theatrics, no self-congratulatory turns of phrase here: Auguscik has intelligence to use her voice in thoroughly unexpected ways?. ?... Grazyna is emerging as an individual voice in a world of sound-alike singers ... Auguscik approaches the art of jazz singing with fervor and intensity.

For the Love with Swing

"I learned about Graz several years after this CD was released and hence heard her later work first. Although the two Graz songs I listen to the most are from this album. Which are "So Reminding Me" & "Dreambird".These are ultimate love songs and songs about life, the lyrics outright speak to me and the melodies flow evenly and softly yet with enough swing to make a perfect song, not too soppy, not too hard.Let me also say that I heard Graz in a club gig around Christmas 2002 and she started the gig off with the song "Leaving", I'll nver forget the drum and bass starting off very loudly and she jumped right into the song and the concert flowed from there. I've heard a lot of jazz in my time but I never heard anyone hit the ground running like that, before or since.This CD cemented my adoration for Graz's music and once you get a taste of this you won't let her go either."
