The young and pretty Wanda Stafford created a big stir at The Roundtable in her debut in New York in 1960… and no wonder! For Miss Stafford has a voice, a style and a feeling for a song that turns in warm and attractive performances, arranged and conducted by the talented Bill Russo.
Patricia Scot will resist all attempts of categorizing. Don’t be surprised if, the first time, you only think about how wonderful the songs are—that’s how good Pat is, and she’s why they’re wonderful.
