“Throughout this recording, Reich and company dig deep into the lore of jazz and Texas swing, presenting a program that riffs on both love and loss. There’s the ebullience of I GOT IT BAD and DEARLY BELOVED. The Cohenesque retelling of AUTUMN LEAVES. The reworked new wave of MAD WORLD. As on her 2011 debut, THIS YEAR’S KISSES, the session is peppered with a delightful dose of melancholy – the spare beauty of MY FOOLISH HEART and TENNESSEE WALTZ provide the album’s strongest moments. In all, WHILE THEY WERE DANCING is a memorable session, one that should lead to even greater things for the Florida-born singer.”
— Andrew Lienhard, March 2015 (liner notes excerpt)
