"Annita is a living doll. She was born in Hudson Falls, New York, and has always had show business eyes. She has headlined her share of the places that comprise neon America and even starred for several years as one of ray Anthony's BOOK ENDS with Diane Hall; but then she and Diane decided to perform their special brand sorcery without the distractions of horns and mutes, and they have been breaking it up ever since, wherever they appear. This is Annita's first album."

Press reviews

"Annita Ray's sublime debut pairs the singer with arranger Harry Betts, whose soft-focus, gossamer backings perfectly complement Ray's limited but evocative vocal palette. Betts' ingenious combination of woodwinds, feather-light strings and subtle rhythms nicely balance Ray's breathy, quavering vocals, lending focus and ballast to a singer in genuine need of both. The material is familiar--e.g. "A Sunday Kind of Love" and "For All We Know"--but to its credit Slow Glow trips up expectations at every turn, creating a listening experience as warm and lovely as its title portends."
