        Since I Don't Have You is a wonderful collaboration between country singer Gail Davies and jazz legend Benny Golson. It demonstrates that there are really only two kinds of music - good and bad.
        Benny Golson, who is a long time friend of Miss Davies and a fan of country music, is one of the original architects of American jazz. He is the recipient of the Mellon Living Legend Award, the NEA Jazz Masters Award and the Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as a member of the Jazz Hall of Fame. Benny Golson was also the subject of the Steven Spielberg movie The Terminal in 2004, relating to his picture in the famous 1958 photograph A Great Day In Harlem.

"Singer-songwriter Gail Davies is generally associated with country music, but her latest outing is jazz, jazz, jazz, all the way. This breezy title tune finds her floating and flitting through loads of groovy chord changes. Her tenor saxophone accompanist is Jazz Hall of Fame member Benny Golson. His phrasing is just as cool as hers. The repertoire ranges from standards like "Am I Blue," "Good Morning Heartache" and "Here's That Rainy Day" to newer tunes by the chanteuse, her late brother Ron Davies and her son Chris Scruggs. Heartily recommended." – Music Row Magazine
