Top Collegiate Jazz Vocalist at Sacramento Traditional Jazz Festival Feb '07
“The backing on Jazzy Christmas To You! is sparse-just piano or guitar on several tracks and a trio on the others-and it works, serving to keep Jillaine’s voice out front as it should be. Aided by wonderfully fresh arrangements, Jillaine generously seasons the set with jazz and blues, but doesn’t ever stray so far as to make the album inaccessible to fans of traditional Christmas vocal albums.”
