"She has that special gift you cannot buy in a music store." -Les Paul
"A double threat: she plays the bass fabulously, and has a singing voice that shares the relaxed sexiness of Julie London and the coquettishness of Blossom Dearie." -Swing Journal
"Worth hunting the web for!" -Russell Davies, BBC
