"The first time I played a recording of Anthony Russell singing a Yiddish song, it was as if thunder rolled through the house. His rich bass voice wraps itself around a song and makes it rattle the windows." Margaret Sloan
"If you think you know what a Yiddish singing star looks like, think again. The new, hot name in the world of Yiddish musical performance is Anthony Russell, and he's a 33-year-old, 6'1'' African-American hipster from Oakland, California. . . . Baptist-born and Jew by choice, opera singer Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell's 'niggunim' have soul." Times of Israel
