Dorough is as hip and creative as ever...nearly every selection is an album highlight ... at 90, Dorough still brings it!
among the last of the classic jazz vocalists.. singers who phrase with genius, and express the lyric as nobody can... undulating and glissandos that rise and fall with ingenuity; and the sudden arpeggios that spell utter magic... he derives and provides the most glorious pleasure from soaring high above and mere mortals can only stand agape at the immensity of his world... endlessly inventive... some of the finest phrasing since Louis Armstrong... magnificent performances inform the ensemble that backs up the ineffable Mr. Bob Dorough, one of the icons of modern music whose album Eulalia is truly unforgettable.

a singular talent...nobody sings with his hip Arkansas-Texas twang...defying expectation...full, beautiful sound... (a) distillations of lifetimes in the music, and you can't put a price on that.
Those familiar with Bob Dorough know that his arranging skills are as shrewd as his songs, piano playing and vocals. On Eulalia (Merry Lane), we get to hear all of Dorough's talents.
wonderful...pristine beauty...masterful...(a) Garden of Delight
