Reviewers have said:
Day is impressive in his ability to go from deep brooding ballads to joyful flamboyant up-tempo numbers pulling off each tune as effectively as the next. (Cathy Gruefelder, Jazz Improv)
What stands out most about the Harlem Based singer is his versatility. Day’s peasant baritone, with dollops of second tenor silkiness is as warm and inviting on ballads as it is on up-tempo tunes. (Herb Boyd, Amsterdam News)
Dennis Day is a magna cum laude graduate of the Billy Eckstein/Nat King Cole school of buttery baritones. In Day’s case, though, there’s a healthy dollop of cayenne, plus a spoonful of grit, blended into the butter. (VOX Jazz Improv Magazine)
