"The blend of music and song are beautifully balanced and collaboratively focused by Lorraine and her band....refreshing original arrangements. Romantically seductive and simply gorgeous!â
Michael Keene, DJ - KVMR

"Lorraine Gervais is one of jazz's great voices. Her silky highs and warmly resonant midrange is her's alone. ..â Jazz Chronicles

âThe sultry vocals of Lorraine Gervais are fresh and original. The tasty mixture of genres holds the attention of the listener.â Richard Bourcier

âLorraine Gervais has a unique sound reminiscent of Randy Crawford singing with the Crusaders in the 80's or Cassandra Wilson, but one that is totally her own. ..... . With a deep contralto voice that is full of soul and heart, she took us on a wild ride of some familiar lyrics with a new twist on the melody - 60's rock and folk with a big infusion of jazz. ..... Lorraine is also a composer and she brought us a couple of her original tunes, one of them, Cool Water, was absolutely wonderful, the lyrics inspired by Lake Tahoe. .... it was pretty obvious that this lady could take a nursery rhyme and turn it into a soulful hit. ...â Vivian Lee, Savannaâs Jazz Series, Sacramento.
