Their signature sound features Angela scatting along with Ron's alto saxophone. Angela DeNiro, with the Ron Aprea Orchestra, has three albums to her credit, all of which feature the writing of Ron Aprea, along with composer/arranger Frank Foster and Dennis Wilson.
Lionel Hampton, after recording his solo on Angela's Swingin' With Legends album, had this to say: " ...Angela has got the voice, boy! You feel that big voice coming out of that girl...her voice is great and her diction is perfect! I'm so glad I was on that date with you (Angela)...you are a great talent. I put you in the class with Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald...tell everybody look out...my girl's comin'!"
