"...I think we hit the jackpot for supergroups…because
this one is amazing."

"Assembling one ensemble to
cover the Monterey Jazz Festival's stylistic reach
is an almost as impossible a task as bottling the
giddy excitement reliably generated on the fairgrounds
every September. But the Monterey Jazz Festival On
Tour: 55th Anniversary Celebration, an all-star sextet
designed to represent the Monterey experience, comes
pretty darn close."
Jose Mercury News,

“It is impossible to
compare any singer with prior eras, where a national
spotlight shone on Sarah and Ella and Billie, but Dee
Dee Bridgewater, at this stage of her career, belongs
in the conversation."
