"What Carl Jefferson was to Concord, Matt Domber is to Florida jazz, even if this isn’t an Arbors release. Hell, it does have the tent poles of the Arbors sound all over it, with Harry Allen added for good measure. Casalino has become the proverbial big fish in the smallish pond as it seems she gotten herself into everything locally jazz over the last 15 years in the Tampa area. The pomo twinkle in her eye and voice tell you she’s certainly a jazz singer, but she doesn’t bring any of the diva or clip joint thrush vibe to the proceedings. This is a girl that likes a good time and knows how to share it. Mixing some originals with the standards, her long over due debut recording is a nice mixed bag where everything is served well done.Yep, one seriously fun, tasty treat is on tap here from start to finish."

"I am just in awe of this great CD by Lisa. Even the arrangements are fabulous not to mention her fabulous voice that fits perfectly with each and every song. She is a very talented performer and songwriter. The key to this CD is the use of the instrumentalists making every song delivered in a different style. And Lisa makes each and every song stand on their own." ~ Jim Stone, WLNZ - Lansing, MI
"Lisa Casalino's new CD is a great way to start the new year! First-rate singing and outstanding musicianship. Kudos to all."
