“Fantastic new CD Debut from Greta's Bakery! Back in the mid ‘80s girl groups like Bananarama, and more sophisticated Euro-flavored pop-jazz singers Anna Domino and Sade, were all the rage. Twenty years later, one new NYC based group with a new kind of multi-culti kind of pop / jazz viewpoint is Greta’s Bakery.

But more than anything else, it’s a pop album. I think that it’s very easy to like, but I also think that it works on a deeper level, because of the composing and arranging.'”
