2012 Fulbright Scholar Award
“…a very hip musical sense.”
Linda Yohn, Music Director
WEMU, Ypsilanti, MI

”Los Angeles singer and pianist Anne Farnsworth's calling cards are standards and modern pop - combining tasteful improvisation with lyrical imagination and a pinch of humor...”
La Stampa, Turin, Italy

“Saturday Morning is the kind of release that is best described as ‘timeless’. She can sing and she can play. If you love vocal Jazz you’ll love Saturday Morning.”

”Appearing on Clearwater Beach for the first time, Anne Farnsworth is a welcome addition to the Jazz scene. Anne's vocal range and unique stylings are absolutely gorgeous. This review marks the first time Anne has been written about in the area but will by now means be the last.”
Tampa Tribune

”With a profound knowledge of the history of jazz and the American songbook, Anne interprets standards with witty elegance and genuine sociablility. With her improvisational flair and lyric imagination, she evokes the models of humor and swing, Blossom Dearie and Annie Ross.”

”In a coy solo on “Body and Soul”, she recalled Billie Holiday. Scatting impressively on “Twisted”, she gave this chestnut the offbeat elegance of a Blossom Dearie.”
Worcester Record

“We have been giving it airplay for some time — listeners are enjoying the tracks...”
Eric Cohen, Music Director
WAER FM, Syracuse, NY

“I'm very impressed with SATURDAY MORNING. A thoroughly fine disc.”
Rich Tozier, Music Director
Maine Public Radio
