Tenor saxophonists Frank Foster and Lew Tabackin, and legendary vibraphonist Lionel Hampton, joined Angela and Ron Aprea's big band for her last album entitled Swingin' With Legends. Angela De Niro is the only vocalist ever to record Midnight Sun with it's composer, Lionel Hampton. Ms. De Niro can also be heard scatting on Mark Murphy's album Links.
