"Rick DellaRatta is one of the finest Jazz pianists alive."
"It is actually the quality of DellaRatta's voice that grows on me more & more with repeated listenings. At first i felt that Rick's strengths as a pianist were foremost, but with time i have come to understand that Dellaratta's skill as a vocalist is not to be underestimated."His voice has quite a haunting quality to it, being slightly androgenous in tone, sometimes ghostly.... sometimes sexy.
