“Among the multitude of good jazz singers in Britain, there is not one who can surpass Elaine Delmar”

Observer

“One of the ageless, evergreen singing stars … as beautiful and talented as ever … she’s marvellous!”

Michael Parkinson

“Her style is a mixture of Broadway musical punch and jazz inflected subtlety. she has the belting defiance of a torch singer at times and the knowing raised eyebrow rasp of a blues artist, but also a hushed, confiding intimacy where it is appropriate, it is a blend that invites the widest possible audience”

Guardian
