It is difficult to write a review of this CD without superlatives. Balsom is a true trumpeter and artist. The rendition of Shenandoah brings me to tears. The tangos tell me what the dance is all about. Thank you AB.

A fine sampler from the supreme trumpeter 3 Mar. 2013
By John J. Puccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The program of of her hits gives her a chance to demonstrate her virtuosity while at the same time showing us her more warmly communicative side. The only thing I didn't like was the booklet, which provides nothing about her accompaniment, track times, etc.

Don't miss this! 25 May 2012
By Jubilee Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just heard an interview with Ms. Balsom and heard several selections on Sirius Radio. What a beautiful tone and interpretation of the classics, folk songs and spirituals. Can't wait to buy this. Judy in Sterling Heights
If you know her works, you must hear this album 17 Mar. 2013
By Laura W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Allison bridges the gap from classical to contemporary in this album. Her trumpet "verbalization" (for lack of better on description on my might) is astounding. I am awed, and stop whatever else I'm doing to listen to her play: her technique and range are mesmerizing. If you have mostly her classic albums you need to hear her more contemporary works. She is just as, or even more impressive.
