“Rachel Eckroth is a revelation! Through her intimate vocals, interpersonal lyrics and sophisticated, nuanced musicianship she delivers a whole new manner of singer-songwriter borne largely from pure jazz bloodlines. As rare and rewarding as a just-discovered rainforest flower. ”
“Like any highly creative musician, jazz pianist and composer Rachel Eckroth refuses to repeat herself. ”
““... the pianist's writing, touch, and ideas all loom large.””
"...a composer/performer obviously influenced and firmly rooted in the tradition yet makes her own statement in a uniquely elegant manner."
“Well, then. I'm convinced that Eckroth is a consummate professional who can do just about anything. That includes holding her own with the longstanding Phoenix jazz kings, staying true to her artistic goals, and creating and performing original, hip music that can't be pigeonholed into any one category.”
