“. . . Particular pleasures include “If Dreams Came True”, in which Davidson’s addition of a triple-meter countermelody works particularly well, and the vitality of his version of “The Merry Rebbe Elie”. “My Pages are Snowy White” has real charm and “In the Valley” responds attractively to a strange, playful text.” ~ Glyn Pursglove, MusicWeb International
