“...for our money the gypsy-fied version of the theme from The Godfather is divine inspiration...” --JazzWeek

“Through these newer songs, the Hot Club of Detroit proves their mastery of Reinhardt's music, since they can not only play his songs so well; they know how to translate it to other styles. That adventurousness, combined with their considerable musicality, makes Hot Club of Detroit a first-rate debut album -- and after listening to it, it's hard not to want to hear how they go forward on their next album.” --All Music Guide

“This is a recording that can be listened to and enjoyed over and over again-I certainly intend to do so!” --Howard Alden
