“Tight, swinging and sizzling. That's the overwhelming first impression of this terrific CD. Louise's mastery of her horn is quite evident through her solo work and when she leads her band on this journey in musical excellence. You'll love her choice of charts, the arrangements, and the execution. Buy two and give one to a friend”
“Louise Baranger is an accomplished and experienced instrumentalist with fire, range, and sophistication-strong chops and ideas on trumpet, piccolo trumpet, and flugelhorn.”
“The remarkable trumpeter Louise Baranger has created a magical musical homage to the distinctive Harry James sounds and his unforgettable arrangements.”
