Reviews :

Australian-born and New York-based Nicki Parrott is a double threat: She can play the bass very competently, and has a singing voice that shares the relaxed sexiness of Julie London and the coquettishness of Blossom Dearie. She has performed and recorded with the legendary guitarist Les Paul, pianist Rachel Z and her sister Lisa Parrott.

For this collection of Burt Bacharach songs, Nicki is supported by John Di Martino on piano, Paul Meyers on guitar, Harry Allen on tenor sax, and Alvin Atkinson on drums.

"She has that special gift you cannot buy in a music store." - Les Paul

"Nicki brings clear articulation, beautiful tone, a sense of rhythmic assuredness and a touch of allure to inventive arrangements." - Jazz Times

"Nicki Parrott could make anyone love jazz." - Cabaret Scene
