About her new Still Life, George Kanzler of ALL ABOUT JAZZ says: Roiger's timbre has a cognac gravitas hinting at the sass of the younger Abbey Lincoln and Lena Horne."
To hear Teri Roiger is to experience that peculiarly beautiful combination of improvisation, tone, feeling, and phrasing that are distinct elements of jazz freedom." STANLEY CROUCH at 55 Bar
Roiger has a voice like the finest bittersweet chocolate full of rich, dark, contradictory flavors that miraculously blend to create one of the most original vocal instruments in decades." Vic Garbarini, Playboy magazine
A discovery at the Sunside in Paris, Teri Roiger, somewhere between Abbey Lincoln, Billie Holiday and Anita O'Day, played with elegance, expressiveness and authenticity." Jean Szlamowicz, Jazz Hot, Paris
