"Dutch Delight: Louise is of Dutch origin and works and lives in Boston. But she is also a passionate jazz fan, singer and composer. Yes Sir! The surprise is however her latest work, a CD called ´Destiny´. It is a great album with great singing, great tunes and she is accompanied by a bunch of great musicians. And co-produced by Rebecca Parris. Highly recommended folks!"  Bob van Eekhout, Bob's Jazz Blog

"JAZZ is a land of interpreters and only occasionally of singer-songwriters. Yet Louise Van Aarsen, a Dutch-born, Boston-based jazz vocalist, has arrived on the scene with a whole album of fresh original songs and a unique voice. Louise's singing is cool yet worldly-wise; her musicianship is so solid that she doesn't have to turn any vocal cartwheels to prove her jazz credibility. The words are her focus, and she delivers them a distinctive sound and complete directness. Louise has given us an impressive debut CD. The backgrounds incorporate all sorts of styles, including swing, Latin, fusion, and lush balladry. The instrumental details support and never distract from Louise's storytelling, which always rings true."  James Gavin, Liner Notes to "Destiny"

"Like vocalists of another era, Van Aarsen's voice is deeply committed, with a hint of Carly Simon. Dig Someone and the lightly Latin Miss You Till I See You. Van Aarsen's originality and songwriting chops make this a tender choice."  MARC MYERS, Jazz Blog Jazzwax/Author of "Why Jazz happened" (2012), JazzWax
