“...Territo does not sound like any other female jazz singer. Her phrasing and style reminds me more of male singers, like Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett than Holiday or Ella. Territo has kind of the same coolness on her phrasing. You can hear in Territo's voice, she is having a lot of fun singing songs like Down with love, Mambo italiano, Lady is a tramp, Gotta serve somebody, Jobim Waters of March and Waltz for Debby. The arrangements are simple but effective with good musicians on piano, Alan Rosenthal and bass, David Shaich. And two special guests, Dennis Winge playing guitar on Waters of March and Libby Richman playing sax on Gotta serve somebody. This album reflects the diverse musical taste of Territo, including Jazz Standards, show tunes, ballads, brazilian music and even rock.”
