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.

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