All Music Guide - Tom Schulte
A potent combination is the intelligent and earthy songwriting of David Cantor and the sultry and stylizing jazz vocals of Kelly Flint. The timbre of Kelly's voice melds magically with the main instrumentation of stand-up bass, vibes and thoughtful drums. Individual musicians dress up several tracks on guitar, baritone sax and tenor sax. Each track stands alone strongly due to the resilient Cantor construction and Flint's intoxicating delivery. Excepting the elevating treatment of Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side," every track is an original deserving to stand alone as a standard.

The timbre of Kelly's voice melds magically with the main instrumentation of stand-up bass, vibes and thoughtful drums.

Excepting the elevating treatment of Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side," every track is an original deserving to stand alone as a standard. As a testament to the proficiency to the dozen-and-a-half musicians involved, the entire album was recorded live and no overdubs were used. The quirky but worthy music here bears comparison to Cole Porter. The content and approach are ideally suited to today's music fan looking back on a long cabaret jazz history and looking forward with expectation. This pairing of a wordmeister and a mistress of hip lounge is a rare and wonderful thing, so enjoy it. The twelve-page booklet includes all lyrics.

    This band is awesome.

    Every so often, I see a CD and take a chance on it. This is the CD that I'm most happy I ever took a chance on. A jazz base, but kind of laid-back and a bit edgy. I'd never heard anything like it before.
