On this album, Nicki Parrott performs collection of well-known Theme songs from Hollywood movies. She has that special gift you cannot buy in a music store. She plays the bass fabulously, and has a singing voice that shares the relaxed sexiness of Julie London and the coquettishness of Blossom Dearie.

Supporting her are great musicians based in New York, including Chuck Redd on vibraphone, Ken Peplowski on tenor sax and clarinet, John Di Martino on piano, and her sister Lisa Parrott on baritone sax and alto sax.
