Incorporating 24-year-old vocalist Veronica Swift, bassist David Wong, and drummer Kenny Washington, among others, Then and Now recalls a jubilant mashup of CTI-era Bob James, the playfulness of Sérgio Mendes, and the kind of hard-bop blowing one expects from a rhythm section of this caliber. The album brims over with happiness and unbridled swing. - Jazztimes
