JAZZ TIMES MAGAZINE: “Leslie Lewis is all a good jazz singer should be. Her beautiful tone and classy phrasing evoke the sound of the classic jazz singers like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. Leslie Lewis' vocals are complimented perfectly by her husband, Gerard Hagen, and his trio, and special guest Gary Foster on sax.”

CASHBOX MAGAZINE: “Leslie Lewis has a hot one on her hands with “Keeper Of The Flame.” A bona fide sure thing for jazz radio success, the album is packed with tracks destined for cooler iPods nationwide. 5 Stars.”
