"The songs of Bob Levy are a resource well worth mining when looking for good new material, and this festive celebration was as fine an introduction to his work as one could wish for. Sue Matsuki and Dane Vannatter co-hosted the proceedings with equal measures of affection and admiration, and they shared the singing honors with several other performers. To a man (or woman), all of the artists did commendable work, with Laurie Krauz knocking it out of the ballpark with her three numbers." Roy Sander, New York critic and columnist
