Praise for The Chamlins
[The Chamlin's] Johnny Mercer tribute gives us a thoughtfully selected mix of musical material, fine singing, perceptive interpretations, and creative arrangements. Their haunting rendition of "Blues in the Night" replaces the pain and bitterness in traditional interpretations with an ineffable sadness. This is one of their best and most rewarding shows.
