“I’ve now worked with Eva on two of her previous recordings, and I can say with great assuredness that she sounds like no one else. Everything about Eva’s sound is purely individual. Perhaps most impressive is that she understands who she is, she understands her sound, and she embraces it. I’ve always felt that true individuality is realizing who you are and embracing it. She’s never tried to sound like anyone else. She’s developed a strong beautiful sound that keeps on developing in ways that are incredible. I really enjoy working with her. You are sure to enjoy Todas Las Voces
immensely." —Christian McBride
