"Baché is able to sing to the heart of each song ..."
" ... very musical ideas that have enhanced what are already well-known pop culture hits."
"A singer [Baché] with great range of emotion, carefully backed by Bruns' Group."
Bruns and Baché, like stellar predecessors Louie Bellson and Mel Torme, are skilled musicians/arrangers.
Drummer Bruns leads a fine Jazz Collective ... The program is composed of great contemporary jazz, and Latin selections come alive ...
... [Bruns] is able to maintain melodies on many levels on his kit without getting in the way of the band or Baché, but adding so much rhythmic color at the same time, very nice!
He [Baché] combines the tone of [Michael] Bublé, the energy of [Kurt] Elling, and the feel of [Gregory] Porter.
Bruns' drumming and tight arrangements provide the perfect setting for Baché's vocals.
... the interaction between the two is excellent.
He [Baché] sings the way he's inspired to sing and he's not the least intimidated by [Bruns'] powerhouse group behind him.
Bruns & Baché have really put together a great project and offer a classy delivery of an enjoyable collection of tunes.
