SheLan Records 2016. SL024
"Vocalist Sheila Landis and guitarist Rick Matle…have produced a body of outstanding recordings. Many of the duo's recordings have been a showcase for Landis, one of the more dynamic jazz vocalists on the planet. She has a gorgeous voice. At the drop of a hat, she can change it into a muted trumpet, a trombone, a sax, and even a drum. Her pitch-perfect scatting would make Ella and Armstrong jealous. This time around, Matle's virtuosity, his God-given ability to make his seven-string guitar howl, cry, and melt in the palm of his hands is the draw. 'Fine Fat Daddy', 'Taller in the Morning' and 'In a Mellow Tone' are the cuts likely to garner the most water cooler talk."
