“What a great surprise this CD is! The recording is distinguished by the presence of Josh White, whose mellow light baritone voice and virtuoso guitar play to perfection.” - Phil’s Classical Reviews

"The quartet’s music is heavenly, and Josh White (1915-1969) had a lovely, honeyed tone that stood out expressively over his puckish guitar riffs. This CD belongs in every home and classroom." - People's World
