Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Ms Nigro, in the spirit of the latter, and with a great deal of elan, has pulled from nearly every genre of music in her numerous recordings from Vivaldi to Rossini to contemporaries. Here, her tongue-in-cheek performance of rags by Scott Joplin gives us a taste of the humor beyond the unwieldy behemoth. Here is a fantastically accurate sampling of a "Barrel House" upright piano playing accompaniment to the musical equivalent of an elephant dancing on its tippy toes. From the 'Maple Leaf Rag' to 'The Entertainer', this is a barrel of enjoyment.
