“There's always that moment... when you realize you've just been blown away by some talented shit. That's the moment I had after being pierced by Susana Santos Silva and her hour long epic debut, Devil's Dress.”
Stephan Moore

“With her impressive 2011 debut as a leader “Devil’s Dress” and involvement in various European projects, highly-educated trumpeter Susana Santos Silva looms as a nascent voice within progressive-jazz circles” Glenn Astarita

“Silva's quintet has proven itself among the ranks of adventurous modern jazz” Daniel Lehner

“Her tone can be buttery or bold, a rare combination for a trumpeter, and she isn't afraid to experiment with smeared notes and out-of-focus tones, which give the music a more personal sound” Dan Bilawsky

“She steps out into the limelight with her debut recording, the original and adventurous but always engaging “Devil's Dress” D.Macclenaghan
