"Retta Christie is a superior singer of swing tunes."
"Retta Christie and her accompanists capture faithfully the swing era sounds. The songs are stylishly done and have a wonderful charm about them that is hardly heard these days. Retta shines . . . and her voice is a perfect vehicle for expressing these songs."
—Lee Prosser, JazzReview.com
"Retta Christie was an Oregon farm kid who learned to square dance and to accompany family members and her own singing with her guitar. She loves bristling Western swing, good Dixieland, cowboy movie music and clever song-stories by composers such as Floyd Tillman and Dave Frishberg. This is not eclecticism for its own sake–Retta has heartfelt reactions to a variety of songs and singers and she expresses those feelings by telling–singing–each story her own way."
—Richard Hadlock, Host & Producer, The Annals of Jazz, KCSM-FM San Mateo, California
“Retta Christie has a singular knack for that curious, vastly entertaining form of Americana that swings in the recesses between jazz and country."
—Tim Duroche, Willamette Week
“Retta's art covers a wide sweep of territory from the openhearted frankness of the swinging South-West to the pastel byways of classic American popular song."
—Tony Baldwin, ABC Radio
