REVIEWS

It's impossible not to like Martha Tilston's singing: bright-voiced, with good intonation and perfect diction, she appears to be totally without ego, putting herself at the service of the song, never pushing her own personality.  A generous double CD. - Ron Simpson (Jazz Rag Issue 165)

This superb 50-track double-CD collection from Acrobat showcases the talent and versatility of one of the many fine vocalists who seem to give a heady waft of the essence of the appeal of the popular white swing-orientated music of the times. Swing was king, but elegant sophistication, a great voice and good looks were required by his consort. The Liltin' Miss Tilton had the lot. - Andrew Liddle (Just Jazz Issue 274)

Yet another reminder of the wealth of excellent girl singers who came up through the big bands and managed to establish themselves as solo artists afterwards… Yet another reminder of the wealth of excellent girl singers who came up through the big bands and managed to establish themselves as solo artists afterwards. - Gerry Stonestreet (In Tune Issue 346)
