"A marvelous singer. First rate!" Jonathan Schwartz
"Formidable and versatile...She seduces the listener immediately with her soulful timbre, at times reminiscent of (Patti) Austin's gentler side. She has recorded a set of impeccably arranged tunes. Theessence of contemporary jazz illumination." All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
"Jane Stuart has all the attributes of a real jazz singer and she utilizes them all. Her musicians are all first class, and that's as it should be. "Let It Come To You" Is an original by Stuart, an introspective look into the soul of Jane Stuart. The lyrics are beautiful and sung with the depth of musical soul searching. "Summertime" This old chestnut is given new life in this version and Jane Stuart lends a personal touch that works brilliantly. Dick Oatts strong alto soliloquy is brief but compelling. The jazz world is a better place because of this recording." Jazzreview.com John Gilbert
"Jane Stuart is as complete a jazz singer as they come. With the timing of a tap dancer, the emotive responsiveness of a stage performer, a voice for the ages, and the experience to put it all together into one unified whole. While Stuart provides plenty of room for her soloists to take off, she still remains the star of her own show: delivering solid swing on "I Just Found Out About Love"; showing she crafts tender melodies with the utmost care ("You Are There") and adds just the right amount of steam to the oft-tackled "Summertime."
