Al Porcino,



(Lead trumpet player of Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Louis Prima, Judy Garland, Mark Murphy, Mel Torme, Sammy Davis jr, Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Stan Kenton and many others):

"Whether you're hearing double-talent Annette Neuffer for the first time, or following her musical progress for some 10 years as I have, you're in for a special treat with her latest release. She swings effortlessly with her lovely sonorous alto voice, never getting shrill or over-selling a good tune. This is real jazz singing. Along with the wisely selected rhythm section of Bernhard Pichl, Rudi Engel & Jens Düppe, Ms. Neuffer creates just the right mood on selections as diverse as the bossa-nova "So Nice", and the deep bluesy "Baby All The Time". Check out her savvy handling of the seldom-heard verse to "Someone To Watch Over Me". And let's not forget her really fine trumpet alongside top tenorist Claus Koch, certainly one of the most swinging inventive saxmen out there today. Who could ask for anything more? Keep up the great work, Annette!" Al Porcino
