“Benita Hill has always loved performing torch songs, jazzy pieces and blues-favored numbers; but she’s enjoyed such success doing many other things that until recently she had never gotten around to recording a disc of standards. But her latest release, I’ll See You In My Song, is not only her foray into that territory, but like all Hill’s projects, it is quite distinctive and stands apart from the array of similarly-themed works from rockers that lack her interpretative flair and jazz sensibility.”
