ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
At first hearing this , I was immediately moving and grooving to the swingin' sound of the Pratt Brothers. These are all of the best players on the scene in New York today. Adding to the dynamics and sublime distinctiveness of this date is the incomparable Roberta Gambarini. This woman is one of the most phenomenal vocalist of our times. I can't begin to find words to describe her emotion, dexterity, phrasing, nuance and style. All I can say, once you hear her , you'll want to again, and again.

Once you open the cd , you will be delighted with and 18 page insert, going into detail all of the intricacies and "behind the scenes" descriptions of the material and arrangements. The Digi pack is first rate all the way. No short cuts here.

Take a look at the Pratt Brothers web site, Jazzcomposers.org

I know that after you hear it, you'll be singing praises for "16 Men & A Chick Singer Swingin'."

Perfect version
On Skylark, Roberta Gambarini gives us the perfect version of the song. This is as good as it gets.

Pratt Brothers & Roberta Gambarini
Too marvellous for words

Frank Sobol

This is a MUST HAVE album that I've been looking for for aver a year
What a wonderful group of standards with contemporary arrangements. I marvel at the musicianship of the players and the vocalist. You guys go from mild to wild at the drop of a hat. The arrangements that back up Ms. Gambarini highlight her artistry. Your rendition of Skylark almost brought tears. What a great album !!!!!!
