The title track is a mesmerizing jazz ballad that embodies a sensual combination of shyness, innocence and romance… a strong and entertaining ode to Dearie’s enduring influence on jazz” - Jordanna Elizabeth

— New York City Jazz Record

Once Upon a Summertime is sublime. It's startling how fully the Dearie demeanor and sound are captured without appearing to be self-conscious or effortful. It's fond, not forced.” - Rob Lester

Talkin' Broadway

Sharon and Joe sound exquisite. Their shared purpose and musical compatibility is so strong that they often sound like a single pianist-singer rather than two individuals. Blossom Dearie would have approved.” - Scott Yanow

— LA Jazz Scene

A rich, multilayered journey, Once Upon a Summertime is a soundscape treasure for jazz connoisseurs and public library collections, highly recommended.”
