Dave Saemann
Fanfare, November 2019

The musicians on this album had a lot to be proud of, and the unifying power of jazz in a world torn by conflict should be cherished in jazz’s homeland. Recommended. © 2019 Fanfare Read complete review

Lynn René Bayley
The Art Music Lounge, April 2019

Hot jazz growling swinger, sophisticated pop stylist, high-note specialist in scat and late-period phenomenon, the late Alice Babs had one of the most diverse careers of any jazz singer in the world—to which she added, in the 1960s and just for fun, singing classical music as well. Sometime during the 1950s, year unspecified, Babs studied voice at the Royal Conservatory in Stockholm, which extended her range upward by about an octave and a half, allowing her to dazzle Swedish audiences, Duke Ellington and the world with a phenomenal ability to go up into the stratosphere with the strength and purity of a coloratura soprano. © 2019 The Art Music Lounge Read complete review
