“String quartet arrangements of jazz standards are nothing new—and sometimes they’re not even anything special. This album is, though. The first four tracks consist of selections from Porgy & Bess arranged for string quartet plus clarinet, and they’re excellent. But even better are Jerome Kern’s own arrangements…Everything is played beautifully, with a very nice balance between romantic yearning and jazzy swing. Highly recommended.” — CDHotlist.com
