"Her opening night performance of an Ella
Fitzgerald signature song poured out a full-bodied confidence that nearly matched that of
the legend who made it popular."
The New York Observer:
"In the world of cabaret performers, Ann
Hampton Callaway is a silver Bentley in a lot full of used Toyotas."
The Los Angeles Times:
"She has a powerful storytelling quality,
enriched by her strong sense of swing, her imaginative improvisational skills and her rare
ability to enrich her interpretations with colorful tonal variations."
"She has a set of pipes that call to mind all manner of brass instruments - seductively muted trumpets, raucous horns, a faraway,
mournful French horn."
