Pierre Giroux
Audiophile Audition, August 2013

…Kurt Edelhagen in 1954 assembled [a] group of German musicians into highly-disciplined orchestra to play charts from the Great American Songbook and the results are presented here in this interesting JazzHaus release.

…Caterina Valente[’s]…renditions of “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” and “Pennies From Heaven” are well done…There is a short but delightful piece of music on the penultimate track entitled “There’s No You” and on it Edelhagen perfectly captures the sonority and denseness of the Kenton sound and one can only wonder what the full chart might have sounded like.

All in all this album is a textbook showcase of swing music that has been lovingly restored by Jazz Haus. © 2013 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
