***** DOWN BEAT
COOKING THE BLUES
"The playing level on this set is very high indeed. An ideal companion album for Sweet and Lovely. One wonders why Norman Granz didn't choose to release both in a double-record package." (John A. Tynan, 1958)

***** DOWN BEAT
SWEET AND LOVELY
"These seven tracks, especially the second chorus of 'Magic' and the medium-fast minor original 'Moe', are peerless DeFranco in a variety of styles and tempos, despite the LP's misleading title. The presence of Farlow is a fine bonus, particularly on 'Wonderful'. I suggest that everyone listen to this record." (Leonard Feather, 1958)
