Here`s what the reviewers say:

JAZZ UK
".......four tracks by the highly compatible vocalist Annie Bright."
THE MUSICIAN
".......Annie Bright`s wistful treatment of 'How Long Has This Been Going On?', followed by Dave`s pensive tenor solo, is a particular highlight."
JAZZ JOURNAL
".......on How Long Has This Been Going On? we are treated to a delightfully husky reading of Ira`s unmatchable lyrics."
JAZZ JOURNAL (Alun Morgan)
"Dave`s quartet is joined by his wife, Annie Bright, who sings so beautifully on four of the 17 tracks including what could well be the definitive version of How Long Has This Been Going On?"
JAZZ RAG
"It is difficult to describe musical style without recourse to comparisons, yet to say that Gelly has a decidedly Lester Young (and therefore Getz) influence and that Annie Bright embraces Peggy Lee`s approach is to imply a degree of imitation, which does them an injustice. This is a class act."
