"Anita's singing has been responsible for a whole school of singers with many imitators and disciples.  She has come a long way from singing with the Gene Krupa, Stan Kenton bands.  She never sings a song the same way twice.  Anita will spin a grace note like a baker whips a topping.  She punctuates the notes between the chords , weaving and stretching the song like a spider weaves her web.  Even though she improvises, you can still hear the song going by and understand the words."  Roger Neumann
