“Tom Lellis is a bold, innovative musician with a supple voice and distinctive style. Lellis imitates nobody, and his passion is evident in every word he sings. Refreshing!" -- All About Jazz

Standards and new works with a terrific, unique Latin Flavor “Tom Lellis is a man of many talents as he so well demonstrates on this fine new CD. Not only is he a fine and pungent vocalist, but he also is a strong lyricist, composer and arranger. This is one of those recordings for easy listening in the evening watching the sun go down - and the fire come up!" --Amazon.com

“This is very much a haunting and atmospheric set, one of Lellis' most intriguing to date." --All Music Guide

“Tom Lellis has everything going for him." --DownBeat

“A spirited, nimble embroidery of melody" --New York Times
