“British-Caribbean jazz vocalist Tessa Souter puts her own stamp on jazz and pop material through sure-footed musical instincts. The phrasing is absolutely serpentine as it slithers around the melodic line of a song. Who else would think to swing Cream's plodding “White Room"? Souter can also render a ballad, like her soul-baring “Here's to Life." She's an important jazz voice at the moment ...." KIRK SILSBEE, LOS ANGELES BEAT “Not many vocalists can sing Jimmy Rowles' “The Peacocks" with the beauty and effortless grace of Tessa Souter." SCOTT YANNOW, LA JAZZ SCENE “It's one thing to hear a superb set from a known giant like Randy Brecker; it's a different, particularly exhilarating feeling to witness a great performance by a relatively unknown singer like Tessa Souter. Judging from the ovations she received at High Fidelity Saturday night, the entire audience felt the same way." RON NETSKY, ROCHESTER CITY NEWSPAPER REVIEW OF ROCHESTER JAZZ FESTIVAL CONCERT “Tessa Souter brings new life to time-honored standards while also mining a creative spark from the unlikeliest sources." TIME OUT NEW YORK

“A must-see for lovers of world class jazz." Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
