ReceptionEdit

Christopher Loudon reviewed Many a New Day for the Jazz Times in October 2015 and wrote, "At last, the Hammerstein portion of the Rodgers canon is getting serious, full-length appreciation...There's no room on this album for splashy solos or virtuosic grandstanding. The focus is squarely on sensitive, intelligent arrangements shaped around Allyson's unique sound—slightly parched and gently tremulous—expressly built to exalt a spectrum of instantly familiar yet largely underappreciated gems. An exquisitely thoughtful trio album, it's also an important one".[3] C. Michael Bailey reviewed the album for AllAboutJazz and gave it 4.5 stars out of 5.[4]
