REVIEWS

It's difficult to nail down just what makes her voice so darn compelling. Maybe it's the comfort and familiarity, maybe the confiding honesty. Whatever the case, it works exceptionally well. — Todd S. Jenkins, AllAboutJazz.com

...[one] of the Top 50 songs of the past [2002] year that got the MOST inquiries and/or requests! — Al Santos, Smooth Jazz 105.9 FM, Washington DC

...[one of] the most satisfying releases by area artists in 2001 — Eric Brace, The Washington Post

A jazzy chanteuse with the pop sensibilities in the vein of Cassandra Wilson and Anita Baker, Changamire has it all: immaculate phrasing, tastefully restrained vibrato, a taste of honey in her tones, delicate songwriting, and fitting accompaniment that neither towers over nor cowers beneath her. — Joseph McCombs, Starpolish.com

Honey-coated singing backed by lush sounding strings and sizzling jazz drumming. Changamir�'s voice has an intimate vibrato that teases its way around the words to her pleasant originals and standards. — Jesse Terry, Listen.com

Une vocaliste jazz comme on en entend que trop rarement. — FranceMP3.com

Soft jazz vocals with lush strings. Just when you thought you'd have to start unboxing those old LPs. — The Tucows Music Network

....a wonderfully talented jazz singer.....pitch accuracy and vocal tone quality is right up there with the “top-shelf Divas” - BRAVO!!! — General Jazz Music Director, MP3.com

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
