Ernestine Anderson has earned her title of "jazz legend." Years of singing and living have shaped a vocalist who can make your heart cry one moment and dance the next. Poignant ballads, sassy swing, and down-home blues--Ernestine Anderson is master of them all.
"Exactly how Anderson keeps her contralto so plush and supple ranks among the sweet imponderables of the art of jazz singing.... she remains an eloquent song interpreter with a broad array of expressive devices at her command. "
-- Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
"At the Hollywood Bowl, Ernestine Anderson (who is now 75) showed that she has it, putting plenty of feeling into 'One Mint Julep' and lots of sass into her trademark song 'Never Make Your Move Too Soon.'"
-- Scott Yanow, Jazz Scene
"Ernestine Anderson's style and physical presence is pure elegance and class, and is only outmatched by her own vocal brilliance."
-- Michael Kissinger, artistic director of the Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival, August, 2004
"On 'Love Makes the Changes,' Anderson's exquisite voice, smooth as buttered rum, is deeper and huskier than we remember it from her long ago salad days at Mercury or even her 1980s resurgence at Concord but is no less alluring. "
-- Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
"What comes out of Anderson is a deep feeling for the blues and swing, a natural phrasing that cuts to the chase and a sense of lyricism that doesnt stray too far towards sentimentalism."
-- Beth Peerless, Monterey Herald
