Ann Mitchell Jazz / Press

“My only programming suggestions would be the addition of a few more of our considerable local jazz talents (though I recognize our jazzers also have the benefit of the city's jazz festival in June). Of course, it is impossible to see everything — or even close to everything — in a festival that includes 500 performances. But, we found several winners. They included: Ann Mitchell's tuneful tribute to Peggy Lee.”

“I visited Rochester last month for the Corn Hill Arts Festival. I think it was my fourth visit this time. Well anyway, I'm a big jazz fan. I looked for your group that morning and I truly enjoyed the music. Photography is my other passion so I combined the two and came up with a nice video of your group.”

"Well worth seeing. She is passionate about her music and has fun at the same time."

“Hello Ann, Caught the later part of you show on jazz90.1 tonight……I thoroughly enjoyed what I heard. Being a sucker for ballads, I especially liked "What a difference a day makes". Everything I heard sounded completely professional, and I like your style. I hope that we can get out to hear you sometime next summer.”
