All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Pianist Ted Howe's third CD for Summit is a bit of a switch from his earlier efforts, as he mixes standards with a series of original compositions with lyrics by Rebekah Miller, featuring jazz vocalist Giacomo Gates or film/stage singer Lainie Kazan on about half of the tracks.
