Singer Kathryn Allyn, with a huge assist from musical director, co-arranger (with Allyn) and pianist Frank Ponzio, stands ready to educate us on the subject of V-Discs in this musically superb set of early 1940s period songs...Tom Hubbard on bass, Hayes Greenfield on saxophone and Scott Neumann on drums ... are splendid contributors to the proceedings.  Allyn sings in a strong, sure voice and internalizes lyrics well beyond her years.  Robert Windeler,


Particularly strong performances were heard in “Mood Indigo,” “You Go to My Head” and "Mood Indigo”... The phrasing was luxurious, and backed by her superb band - Ponzio (piano), Tom Hubbard (bass), Hayes Greenfield (sax), and Scott Neumann (drums) - she conveyed the atmosphere of a dark and smoky gin joint."... With the relaxed pacing of a catchy samba, Allyn was at once assertive and flirty... has a powerful voice, a wide range, a satirical sense of humor, presence, directness and sex appeal.  - Jerry Osterberg, Cabaret Scenes
