In a witty and energetic updating of mid-20th century vocal groups such as the Andrews Sisters, the U.K. trio the Puppini Sisters perform close-harmony swing-style backdates of contemporary pop songs, such as their Italian wedding reading of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" and a slinky version of Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights." Also featured are 1940s and '50s pop classics such as their a cappella "In the Mood" and the Andrews Sisters' own "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B."
JazzTimes (p.113) - "They;ve got pep, panache and acres of giggly zing."
The Puppini Sisters are possibly my favourite artists and this album does not disappoint. The reinterpretations of some old favourites on here are beautiful. With beautiful harmonies and such beautiful voices it’s best to let this music fill the room, letting it create such a beautiful mood. Personally I think it would be great for dinner parties. I cannot reccomed this album highly enough!
