"The Guido Shuffle"- "It jumps, swings, rock & rolls with some of the best cover versions you'd want to hear. Masterfully performed in a rousing good time party atmosphere. Rico & the Jump 'n' Jive Review are righteousness in today's music. They have a fun time and you will too!" - Bo Lewis Band Dance Party

"This Is It" - "The band swings and Rico's singing style reminds me of a combination of Louis Prima and Buddy Greco" - Ron Della Chiesa, WPLM, Easy 99.1

Joining the Jump n Jive Review will be Tyra Penn a sultry and swinging vocalist who has her own radio show on 91.3FM "That's Jazz".
