The Talent


“James’ warm and honeyed voice – like Dianne Reeves, a voice born for jazz….James has found the right point between the hip and the sweet”. John Hardaker, Words about Music, 12/3/16

“Ingrid’s vocal caresses and cajoles over a sinister Radiohead-like piano arrangement interrupted only by Reeves’ solo which echoes Bill Evans and Monk. An intoxicating potion”. Peter Timmerman (ABC)

“James’ vocal melodies soar with freedom and confidence bringing a wonderfully individual colour to the sound of the band.” Sandy Evans, tenor and soprano sax, composer, educator

“Australian jazz singer Ingrid James’ recent release – Trajectoire – just might convince a few more that there is some good music to be had beyond West 44th Street (or 505 or Bennett’s Lane)….There is a strong feeling of tradition – but respect for that tradition rather than either a dry clinging to it, or a sickly sugaring of it”. John Hardaker, Words about Music, 12/3/16
