”Linda Presgrave is truly a discovery who is pouring her heart into her first recording of national distribution.” —Don Williamson - 52nd Street Jazz

”The main star, however, is Linda Presgrave, whose piano style is pretty original and whose five songs are worth exploring”. Recommended. - Scott Yanow (AMG)

”With her lyrical playing and a stellar ensemble, Presgrave adeptly mines the secular and spiritual side of the music while paying homage to her heroines.” For more information, visit www.metropolitanrecordsnyc.com - by Terrell Holmes 30 May 2006 | ALL ABOUT JAZZ
