Erin Heisel
American Record Guide, January 2015

This recording explores so-called intersections of classical music and jazz. Huang’s performances of the Kapustin Preludes are excellent, and Brock and Photinus add a nice touch whenever they play. © 2015 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Carla Maria Verdino-S├╝llwold
Fanfare, September 2014

This new release by soprano Patrice Michaels on Cedille records is one of the most original, innovative, and adventurous recordings to come along in quite some time! Each track contains a delightful surprise, a revelatory audio experience, and all are sung in Michaels’ warm, rich lyric soprano and shaped with her patrician musicianship, her consummate interpretive intelligence, and her considerable mastery of improvisation and other jazz techniques.

This Cedille release is first rate all the way: beautiful singing, stunning instrumentals, and a coherent and classy program. It is a recording to play and play again! Most highly recommended! © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

WFMT (Chicago), August 2014

Michaels has assembled a singular collection of songs, including one she composed, which give the singer and her instrumental collaborators room to gently improvise and swing in surprising and always-rewarding ways. © 2014 WFMT (Chicago) Read complete review
