"Tina May has an unerring instinct for how to treat a song...(she is) that great rarity, a singer who enhances a song." - Dave Gelly, The Observer
(4 stars) May is on stunning form throughout...her vocalese treatment of Dexter Gordon's 'Hanky Panky' highlights her super-fine technical control. -- Jazzwise, (Peter Quinn), December 2011 / January 2012
A particular treat...May possesses the basic but invaluable gift of swing...the Paris-based band is most impressive. -- The Observer, (Dave Gelly), October 9, 2011
