Review

"...possesses a substantial, classically-trained voice, yet is clearly comfortable...in the tradition of the more theatrical posturings of the vaudeville song." -- Terrence O'Grady, Green Bay Press Gazette

"Dall'Armi's style evoked the innocence and simplicity of mid-19th century music." "...especially fine rendering the Vaudeville specialty, "After You've Gone" -- Naomi Donson, Sarasota Herald-Tribune

"Dall'Armi's style evoked the innocence and simplicity of mid-19th century music." ...especially fine rendering the Vaudeville specialty, "After You've Gone..." -- Naomi Donson, Sarasota Herald-Tribune

"Jody Dall'Armi sings with a beautifully clear focused soprano." -- Jeanne Spaeth, The Washington Post

"She is more than just a spectral mimic of yesterday's great stars. Jody brings her own unique warmth and skill to the performance of these songs." -- Dwight Blocker Bowers, Cultural Historian,The Smithsonian Institution, 2001

This is a special recording. It contains a number of wonderful, familiar ragtime classics, but it also has a number of rarely recorded gems. Jody's voice is incredible. She blends beautifully with the orchestra. This is a must-have recording for any lover of ragtime music! You'll want to play it all of the time because it is just so much fun to listen to!

A splendid singing performance by Jody Dall'Armi, showing that some singers ARE capable of a convincing performance of those old songs, combined with the flawless and well-balanced backing by the Paragon Ragtime Orchestra, in great shape - again! Listen to this, and THEN go, watch and listen to a today's popular singer with his microphone, ever out-of-balance P.A., and, oh yes, his band (if there is one...)

A delightful recording. Beautiful singing, great arrangements. The recording includes a 20-page song book with all the lyrics. There are a number of familiar songs like "Shine On, Harvest Moon." But there are quite a few rarely heard or recorded gems like "On the Level, You're a Little Devil." This is a must have CD.
