"...I think we hit the jackpot for supergroups…because this one is amazing."
– Suzie Racho, KQED 88.5's The Do List, January 3, 2013

"Assembling one ensemble to cover the Monterey Jazz Festival's stylistic reach is an almost as impossible a task as bottling the giddy excitement reliably generated on the fairgrounds every September. But the Monterey Jazz Festival On Tour: 55th Anniversary Celebration, an all-star sextet designed to represent the Monterey experience, comes pretty darn close."
– Andrew Gilbert,
San Jose Mercury News, December 31, 2012

“It is impossible to compare any singer with prior eras, where a national spotlight shone on Sarah and Ella and Billie, but Dee Dee Bridgewater, at this stage of her career, belongs in the conversation."
– Mike Katz, International Review of Music, September 24, 2012
