"Costanzo is not a clone of Cole, Sinatra or any of those icons. His voice is smooth but has a slight gravelly quality. As all great singers do, he tells a story. . . Costanzo wows."-Walter Kolosky, Jazz.com
". . . [H]ere's a cat that knows how to swing it 50s style and could give Steve Tyrell a few pointers on how to sharpen it up to get his groove back. Costanzo and his swinging pals know how to grab the Vegas vibe that most of us have heard about but never were old enough to really experience. It's not a time piece, just a good time that doesn't try to recreate, but exist in its own place bringing some authenticity along for the ride. . ."-Chris Spector, Publisher & Editor, Midwest Record
