"Ms. Thomas sings warmly and forthrightly amid the two-fisted rumbas, R&B vamps, jazz ballads and barrelhouse flourishes. And without getting heady-handed the song choices haven't forgotten what happened to her beloved city." —The New York Times

"The memories of Louis Armstrong, Professor Longhair, George Lewis and other New Orleans greats feel fresh and dynamic in this music, meaning, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band is doing its job." —USA Today
