In the same way that, say, Art Blakey or Buddy Rich drove their bands, DeMerle establishes an undeniable presence...
- Jazz Review

Captured live in the jazz room of the Celebrity Silhouette Cruise Ship, "Feelin' Good" is the Dynamic Les DeMerle Band at its tightest, grooving hard, the music hot and sweet, swinging and soulful. Featured beside Les DeMerle's fiery drumming are his and Bonnie Eisele's equally dynamic vocals, as they perform classics such as "When I Fall in Love," "Speak Low," "Sing, Sing, Sing" and more. "After hearing this quartet live for 12 nights with Les' tight group and the wonderful vocals of Bonnie Eisele, I can honestly say that I am truly a fan..." - George Wein, Newport Jazz Festival.

Reviews of Feelin' Good

Midwest Record (Chris Spector)
A while back, we met a couple that played jazz on cruise ships and it changed our opinion, moving our head away from the usual Sammy Joey jive ass bulls*** you all too often find in those situations. This cruise ship jazz crew kicks it off with a snazzy version of "Speak Low" that not only sends you off into a good time mood, it'll also change ...
