Album Liner Notes by Karrin Allyson

When first putting on an album of a new singer— or any singer for that matter, I must admit— I hold my breath for a minute really hoping that this singer can SING! (this goes for my own recordings too, even to this day!) It's a huge relief when that recording lets you (the listener) sit back and enjoy the voice and not be on the edge of your seat with worries about intonation (singing on/off key) and even better— feeling heart and soul come through right away. BRAVA Sacha! For letting me hear and feel this real enjoyment in your recording—your debut! Which is hard to believe because although it is your first, it sounds very mature and assured. And I love that you've included some of your own original material and lyrics- —lovely, also using what you know and who you are; singing very convincingly in spanish, italian, portugese, french... I love the international quality. The band is first-rate— very solid, soulful and swinging, no surprise there, with this wonderful line up of players. I really love this abum because first of all, she can SING and it is Sacha coming through—- as her own unique self and voice with heart and soul shining through.

What they're saying about Sacha...

”Sacha Boutros is a jazz singer. This is to be differentiated from those who merely sing jazz. While the gorgeous pipes are a nice accoutrement, it's her exquisite phrasing, her ability to caress a lyric, her absolute control over her voice that collectively make her into a jazz musician. Her ability to move seamlessly from jazz into bossa nova, Latin and popular vehicles on her new album only confirms that here is a talent to cherish.” - Jim Trageser, music critic, North County Times / publisher, editor, Turbula.net

“Thumbs Up” - Roger Ebert

Sacha is vocalist like no other besides being a singer she is first and foremost a musician. With practically perfect pitch her musical Sophistication and elegance are timeless. - Frankie Laine

”A Vocalist of Promise...” - San Diego Union Tribune

A versatile, original and innovative singer who demonstrates that Jazz is in her soul. - Bitacora Cultural (Mexican Magazine, Baja California)

”Her music is best described as Latin lounge jazz. Very hip, very cool and yet sensuous like sipping sangria at sunset.” - Mary Castillo, Author

”Boutros, at her young age, has called the attention of jazz lovers everywhere with her original compositions and exemplary vocal range which stems from her classical roots; she has the ability to sing from Blues to Opera.” - El Vigia.net
