It takes a unique approach for the standards of American Popular Song to
sound fresh again. Barbara Levy Daniels has done that, as evidenced by this
collection of 10 of the best by Gershwin, Arlen, McHugh, et al. Her maturity
of style, combined with confidence and control of the production has assured
that these well-known songs are visited anew in a manner that deserves our
attention, respect and enthusiasm, and rewards the appellation 'jazz singer'
to Ms. Levy Daniels. - Dick Judelsohn

The classy song stylist, who interprets the music and makes each song her
own, has a warm and dignified stage presence and a presentation that is

"Although highly regarded by critics and fellow
musicians, Patti Wicks is one of jazz's best-kept secrets. She's a
first-rate pianist, with an inexhaustible supply of fresh melodic, harmonic
and rhythmic ideas, and a warm, sensitive vocalist who interprets a
meticulously chosen repertoire without a trace of affectation or hollow
hipness. Room At The Top, Wicks' debut CD featuring bassist Don Payne and
drummer John Yarling, establishes her as a world-class singer-pianist in the
tradition of Nat Cole, Blossom Dearie, Shirley Horn, Audrey Morris and
Vivian Lord. Make room for the gifted Ms. Wicks." - Joel E. Siegel
