A joyous phenomenon, she becomes her songs… she doesn’t pose, she doesn’t copy, but her entrancing music pierces our hearts – Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives
Any sentence, any phrase, any word in the lyrics she sings and finds some emotional energy to be transformed into a growl, a coo, a shout, a quiver. – Clinton Davis, The San Diego Troubadour
