What can I say... the girl is BRILLIANT!!! I have already made Rita my "Featured Artist of The Day" once and will most likely do it again in the near future. I'm crazy about her voice, her style, her arrangements, her own compositions, etc. This album is a gem. In fact, if there is a Standards Sessions Vol. 2, I'd love to receive it and put it on air immediately!!! Is there a chance that Rita will be coming to Australia in the near future? Keep those pipes working overtime kid... you've got a million dollars down your throat! It is obvious that I'm a Rita di Ghent fan, or do I have to spell it out any clearer?

Thank you so much for the CDs, I have listened to them all and I think they are fantastic. I am definitely going to have you as our next feature artist in the Jazz category on our site. I will also include your Christmas songs in a holiday music feature I am currently working on.
Thanks, I look forward to having you on the site. I think you are an incredible artist.
CDs Reviews by You
Since Ella passed on I have been waiting for someone to come along with the capacity to make music exciting. For my ears, you have accomplished this. I will add your CDs to my play lists.

I'm actually reviewing a rather splendid album of standards…”The Standard Session 1” - an encouraging title, considering how good this is. And the good news continues as I spy the sleeve of Volume 2 in the liner.
Modestly she includes one of her own songs but it's the fresh take on some well known material that makes this so enjoyable. Take a spin through 'You Go To My Head' or 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' if my word isn't good enough. But really, Rita is a rare talent, so get to know her.

My name is Peter Merrett and I’m the Music manager for radio station PBS FM 106-7 Melbourne Australia… I have just received your wonderful cd's "The Standard Sessions 2", ""The Birth Of Sprawl" and ""You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch"… we really love Rita Di Ghent’s stunning singing on these cd's. Her style has fine groove about it and just so very, very cool. Add to this such a wonderful band and it is obvious why we love your work... Once again thank-you for your music and welcome to PBS FM and of course Melbourne Australia. If l can be of any help please don't hesitate to contact me.....
This week I have received three Cd´s of your´s: "Standard Sessions-Vol.1", "The Birth Of Sprawl" and "Groove Christmas"…
Oh, my god, I don´t beleive what I heard when I retransmite your jazz material on my jazz radio program "JAZZ CAFE-FLAVOUR OF JAZZ" (FM Urquiza 91.7MHZ, monday to friday to 9PM to 12PM), a new fresh, sensual and swingin´ jazzlady. I like it The Birth Of Sprawl and Standards Session-Vol.1, good jazz in a fine and original voice. Billie Holiday,Carmen McRae, Sheila Jordan and others great jazz ladies are present in your sweet jazz voice. For me it is a great honour to have the possibility to retransmite your fine jazz material to the argentine audience of JAZZ CAFE. I wish that someday you will come to sing your Standards Sessions on my country Bs As, me and the jazz cafe audience love the way you sing jazz and love your compositions.
