Tammy Scheffer / Press

"...a magical, invigorating set that emphasizes the human voice as a melodic and highly versatile instrument, somewhat suggestive stylistically of Judi Silvano, Gretchen Parlato, Kendra Shank, Tessa Souter… and not like any other. Scheffer has the agility and panache of a seasoned horn player and the imagination of the brightest stars of her generation..."

“Listening to the new CD, Wake Up, Fall Asleep, by Tammy Scheffer has only wet my appetite for seeing her live at The Local 269, on Houston Street, in NYC, Tuesday April 19th. It is a work that says Jazz from start to finish. Opening with "I Can't See You Now"a rhythmic piece, when I first heard it, I was reminded of the fabulous Yolande Bavan, by the way Tammy uses her voice as another piece of the band. What she does I can't call "scatting" it's much to organized and eloquent, she blends her vocals as a flutist would, with passages of extraordinary musicianship, and perfect intonation. "When You Wish Upon A Star" is a cut I was really impressed with. When you as a group can take a Disney Classic and run with it like they present it here was amazing, what a chart!”
