“It is astonishing how, in this country, apparently out of the blue a new voice arrives on the scene fully and perfectly formed. Her voice is amazingly even in it's strength, and her tone is warm as coffee. Her use of head voice(falsetto), expands her range with respect to both pitch and expression. Aitken has a good sense of swing, great phrasing and expressive intensity, and an amazing ability to sing a note without vibrato and hold it perfectly in tune. She uses that (cool) colour with a subltle wave in it at the end of a long note. It's a melodic moan, and it is only possible when the pitch is perfect and the tone colour mesmerizing in it's plasticity and warmth-no ornamentation-just that colour and the shape of her air. The recording ambience of "Be Cool" is extremely clean, but the album is focused on Aitken's voice, a lovely instrument. Even the spoken words resonate.”
