Jazz Sensibilities - Stamish Malcuss
"June Bisantz and Alex Nakhimovsky, deliver a work that combines melodic, jazz themes with a Rachmaninoff inspired string section - a magnificent work. Nakhimovsky is a force on the piano and his skills are no less apparent than the vocal abilities of his partner.
Put this on and get lost in romance.“
Audiophile - Paul Wilson
“Bisantz has a low burn sensuality that percolates with assuredness and sophistication, and Nakhimovsky is genius with his colorizations of the melodies. Delightfully witty lyrics, paired with music that enlivens the senses and lightens your heart. An engaging listen from start to finish,
Love’s Tango is a recording of urbanity and splendor.”
