"Patty proves her jazz credentials.. She let her hair down and enjoyed the ride. She swings with a throw-away phrasing and a bitter-sweet smile that is the mark of a great nightclub singer. This is the kind of music that I love to discover when I walk into the room, classic songs (and Patty's choice of material is really first rate) sung in a classy manner." - Ben Sidran
