Reviews
Body And Soul (Film)
 
"Show a classic silent film with a mighty orchestra playing a provocative, jazz-based score, and the effect can be startling. That's what Chicago composer-conductor Renee Baker and music editor Don DiNicola have been doing with "Body and Soul." ‑ Chicago Tribune
 
"A compelling new jazz score for the film... made its successful debut and the response has been sensational every time the film is screened...." ‑ Shadow and Act
 
"It was a gorgeous experience, elevating my appreciation for Micheaux, and my continuing fascination with the impressive talents of Miss Renee Baker. I do hope her collaborations with Don DiNicola increase in number." ‑ Lewis Achenbach's Jazz Occurrence
